What's your race number? Last time I did a team race, we got #360. So our name was Full Circle.

I'd consider Chainbreakers, as last month I nearly went through 2 chains. I think I've fixed that now though...

MySpace rejects

Dirteaters - probably be a jinx more than a team name.

Team name I've seen that took the least amount of effort - Team No Name.

The strangest team I ever saw at a 24 hour event was "The Brew Crew." Now, in and of itself, that isn't too interesting until you consider this: these knobs filled their Camelbaks with beer and rode the entire 24 hour race drunk!

Needless to say, they had some major issues (I'm sure if you think about it for a second you can come up with about 100 problems with this tactic) but it was sort of funny nonetheless.

As for your team name, how about "Hind-Quarters" (if you're a 4 man team), "Breakin' Wind", "Fat Tire Flatus", or, if you'd like something not referrencing your a**es how about "Rolling Resistence" or "Rubber Knobs."

How about "Ultegra"? Oops, wrong thread!

How about "BikeForums"? That should get you a lot of support from around here.

Have you considered "Orient Express", "Tachyon" (faster than light), "Imperial Walkers", or "Quadzilla"?

In order to get some good suggestions, you might give us some more insight into you and your team members.

On the other hand I've always wanted to make a team called "Team Lazy-Boy" and tote recliners in the trailer with the bike and sit around drinking beers before the race. That would be fun.

Or you can all rock up in flanalette shirts and be "Team Flannel" A couple years ago in the state DH series there was a team Flannel.... they did really well and looked like bogans all at the same time
