Tifosi Welcomes Team iRT Racing!

iRTIntroducing our new sponsored pro team, iRT Racing!  iRT Racing is a men’s continental cycling team based out of Pasadena, California with the mission to bring back the ideals of pureness in sport and to support developing athletes.

Founded in 2014 by Ray Asante and Lynn Perrando (owners of iRT Wheels) and directed by Haldane Morris, iRT Racing will be competing in its inaugural season in 2015 nationally as well as select international races.  The team features a young competitive roster with athletes from both the United States and Mexico.

iRT Racing has created a cohesive environment between the athletes and sponsors, whereby together they can build a program that will be a great experience for not only the spectators of the team, but the sport as well.

The goals of iRT Racing could not only be about cycling and athletics. Asante and Perrando did not want to create a team that only focused on the world of competitive cycling. Both Asante and Perrando believe that growing a sport also involves growing the entire athlete – body, mind, and spirit.

iRT Racing is proud to partner with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, bringing a philanthropic voice to the organization. With the selection of the research being done by Dr. Anat Erdreich-Epstein MD,PhD, iRT Racing is riding in support of research on children’s cancerous brain tumors. By supporting the research being done, iRT Racing hopes to minimize the number of children in the future that have to endure this terrible illness.
