Who We Are
FirstIB Cycling is an elite amateur cycling team based in Fishers, Indiana. We have some of the top U23 cyclists in the Midwest, along with a handful of accomplished veteran racers.

Over the past four years of racing, we've discovered that we have some pretty talented photographers in the peloton and in the stands. We're proud to showcase their work on our site and are grateful for their time and talents. We do, however, reserve the right to remove any photos that make Becker look like a

Bri has been racing since she was born and has competed at the highest level of the sport for many years. She is also an accomplished team chef and is famous for her ability to scramble six dozen eggs at a time, along with 10+ pounds of bacon. When she is not racing she is usually litigating, writing Harry Clark jokes and not sleeping.
John is ripped. And he is fast. And if you try to come around him in a sprint, he will rip you fast. Well-known for his revolutionary diet of oatmeal cream pies and processed meats, John also trains the largest number of hours of anyone on the team (even his KOMs have KOMs, whatever that means). Take it from us, he will be tough to beat in 2016.
Betsy was just getting her feet wet last year but is definitely one to watch in 2016. Her improvement in the sport has never stopped and she's on a steep slope, to say the least. She is powerful and she is a hard worker. As one of our core multi-discipline riders, look for Betsy to animate a lot of races in 2016, both on the road and in the dirt.
Jack had a breakout season last year, winning a very tough Bloomington Crit (beating out his future FirstIB teammates!) and also the Ohio State Championship Road Race. Jack has a very subtle sense of humor which most of us have yet to figure out. We think he is of Scotch/Irish ancestry but could also be Australian, Norwegian or possibly even West Virginian. Jack will win some races this year.
We had a great year!
