Vortex Cycling Club began in 1998 in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. The club started primarily as a mountain bike racing team, but as time went on, the club evolved. It has since branched out into all disciplines of bike racing including track, road and ore recently cyclocross. During the history of Vortex, numerous Junior National Champions have been crowned and countless podiums have been achieved. AS much as the racing and results are important to the club, sportsmanship is paramount.
