Legion of Los Angeles

In dieser sonderbarsten aller Saisons weht der Wind des Wandels durch den Radsport, und wenn Legion von Los Angeles etwas damit zu tun hat, wird dieser Wind auch weiterhin wehen. Während sie sich darauf vorbereiten, 2021 in den Profi-Radsport aufzusteigen, treffen wir die Mitglieder von Amerikas bedeutendstem Radsportteam.

Legion of LA

“Elite Cycling Team dedicated to increasing diversity, encouraging inclusion, and giving supporters access to their favourite athletes.”

@l39ion.la

For several years now, Legion of Los Angeles has been conquering all corners of the US crit scene. Led by Justin and Cory Williams, the team sprinted to prominence with upset wins over bigger domestic rivals. But a race result is only an upset for as long as it is a surprise, and these days a Legion win in a crit race is far from surprising.

The team is a dominant force whose uniquely diverse roster of riders have their sights set firmly on bridging the gap to the professional ranks in 2021. But this is a team that’s about far more than being good on the bike. At every race they enter, Legion’s tent is the place to be; their insightful race reports filmed from within the bunch have garnered a following of thousands online, and the team works hard to provide a pathway into the sport for young athletes from all backgrounds.

In a year where charities struggled to raise funds, Justin Williams’ Legion of Los Angeles team managed to raise $50,000 to help increase diversity and inclusion within cycling. Being a part of Legion is about more than becoming a better cyclist, it’s about becoming a better person and redressing some of the imbalances that continue to characterise our sport.

„Wir sind der Wandel, den wir sehen wollen… Wir haben die Mission, das einzige von Schwarzen geführte US-Profiteam zu werden. Im Moment gibt es in Amerika keine schwarzen Radprofis. Wir werden das ändern und für Kinder aller Hautfarben ein Zeichen setzen.“
