Great Eskape is the official cycling team of Greateskape.com, based in the Washington, DC metro area. Our team motto is "reckless in pursuit of glory" and we pride ourselves on being a fun-first team dedicated to keeping 'cross weird. When Great Eskape is at the race there are none more hyped than us. Members of Great Eskape race bikes because racing bikes is fun, but don’t sleep on us, Eskape captured 26 podiums in road, cross, and gravel events in 2018.

We love shredding hard and fast on all manner of bikes, but we mainly stick to racing cyclocross and gravel events. Great Eskape isn't just about racing, even though we really love that part. We love to ride our bikes cool places, pitch our tents, sit by a firepit, drink our coffee outside, and generally have a big ol’ time.


All of Great Eskape’s 2018 cyclocross and adventure racing team members are back at it in 2019, plus a few new friends.


We thank Reckless Ale Works, Conte's Bike Shop, Zeke's Coffee DC, Handup Gloves, Endless Bike Co, Highway Two, and Fizik for your support of our racing and adventuring.

Great Eskape is a close-knit, friends-first team and we only consider new membership requests on a case-by-case basis, typically around the end of the calendar year. If you dig our vibe and are interested in our brand of bike racing we encourage you to contact us and come hang out at races and events to get to know us, we love making new friends and always welcome like minded folks on our rides and adventures.
