Jessica Chong and Russell Schwartz at 1831 Chestnut St., Philadelphia!
The sponsors of our team are truly our bicycle community who support our mission of increasing the number and representation of local athletes competing in all levels and disciplines of competitive cycling. The vast majority of our sponsors are small business owners and active cyclists. A great example of this is our friend Russell Schwartz of William Schwartz Distinctive Jewelry at 1831 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, PA 19103 just steps from Rittenhouse Square. Russell has cultivated a following of loyal, dedicated, and refined customers who keep returning to him for his flawless custom work, ability to craft in any style, and attention to detail. This is a man with a five-star rating on Yelp! We know Russell as a dedicated cycling enthusiast who competes against himself and others in master's level gravel events.

Russell took it upon himself to commemorate two of our elite team athletes with engraved dress watches from Citizen Watches: In 2023, Jessica Chong's (Lehigh Valley) accomplishments include winning the Tour of Somerville, the New Haven Gran Prix, the Madison Cup, and was awarded Rider of the Year at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center. Colin Fitzgerald's (East Falls) season included a top ten finish at the Bucks County Classic, 5th at the Easton Twilight Criterium, 10th at the West Dundee Cycling Challenge (Chicago, IL), 8th at the Tour de Lafayette (St. Louis, MO), 16th at the USA Cycling Pro National Championship Criterium, and a host of podiums in local and regional races.

We'll never be able to fully express our gratitude to the local businesses and institutions that support our athletes. This was a particularly sincere gift from our sponsor Russell Schwartz at William Schwartz Distinctive Jewelry. Thanks for classing us up with that bling bling!
