Oliver Racing will continue to actively participate in and support competitive gravity-based riding in order to encourage and promote local and regional biking talent, thus helping us develop our riding skills. We will represent our sponsors and ourselves in a professional manner. Our goal is to race as much as we can while documenting our progress and accomplishments along the way.
Oliver Racing is a gravity based mountain bike racing team operating out of Southern Connecticut with riders who live and race throughout the Northeastern United States. Oliver Racing started in 2004 with just a couple of friends racing downhill who wanted a name to write down in the sponsor slot on the entry forms. Six years later that group of friends decided to take it a step further and make it official. This collection of passionate individuals participates in many gravity race disciplines including but not limited to Downhill, Enduro, Dual Slalom, and Super-D.
Oliver Racing was created to help showcase hidden talent and provide experienced riders a supportive framework in which to pursue their goals, foster competition, and grow sportsmanship qualities. All this while offering recreational cyclists an environment in which to grow, develop confidence and learn more about the sport. We have always sought to partner with great athletes who strive to represent themselves in a positive way. The relationships we have with our team riders represent much more than a simple sponsorship, they reflect a deep partnership and alignment of goals.
Since our start in 2010 we have partnered with Bureau’s Sugarhouse to help advertise their Maple Kettle Korn to New England through the regional mountain bike race series. For 2010 and 2011 we provided and sponsored fourth place prizing for the Gravity East Series. For 2012 we joined forces with the Eastern States Cup, the US Grand Prix at Highland Mountain, the OverMountain Enduro at Highland, and the Battle of Hellion at Highland Mountain Bike Park. We presented all 4th place finishers with a bag of regionally renowned Maple Kettle Korn as well as a handful of stickers from our sponsors, E*Thirteen chainrings, and an Azonic USA discount card.
