AT SEMPER PORRO OUR PHILOSOPHY IS OUR NAME: ALWAYS FORWARD

WHO WE ARE

Semper Porro – Latin for Always Forward – is a coaching and development program created with the intention of building riders to the very top of the sport of cycling.  For 2019, Semper Porro has formed a Domestic Elite Team to further support the growth and development of its athletes.  The ethos of Semper Porro is rooted in the concept of always moving forward, long-term development, and relentless attention to detail.  

OUR GOAL

The goal of Semper Porro is to establish a US Cycling Development Program that will cultivate 5-Star Athletes capable of winning Grand Tours, Classics, World Championships, and Olympic Gold Medals.  The current ascension plan for US athletes centers around “talent” identification and a program heavily focused on racing. At Semper Porro, we believe that in order to succeed at the highest level, athletes need a long-term program that is focused on training and athletic development.   

In 2018, Semper Porro Athletes earned victories in 21 races at the Pro 1 / 2 level including the Men Elite National Time Trial. In 2019, our goal is to compete for wins at the national level – UCI 2.2 Stage Races, USA Crits, National Championships – and achieve 30+ wins overall.  

In 2020 our aim is to step up to the UCI Continental level.  We will target 40+ wins, specifically aimed at overall victories at Joe Martin, Redlands, Tour of Gila, North Star Grand Prix, Tour of Utah, and Tour of Colorado.

 

WHAT WE NEED

To support the long term needs of the individuals on the team, the team needs resources to allow the athletes to focus on training and development.  We are looking for partners who share our commitment to the highest level of performance possible. We also are looking for partners who are committed to year over year development and understand the need for a focused approach to racing.  In addition to equipment, we are looking at a minimum team budget of $25,000 to cover race fees and travel.

That feeling when you win the TT, RR and Overall at the Bicycle Blues and Barbeque Omnium. Innokenty, you are a one man wrecking crew. Super proud of you. All the sacrifices, all the hard work, all the difficulty you have endured make this so much sweeter. Keep crushing it. Looking forward to Intelligentsia!

Great job, Inno🚴🏻‍♂️💪

Congratulations, Innokenty!

I knew him when... good adult now. And champ

Solid Work Inno!

Getting aero is relatively simple. Riding in a powerful position is also pretty easy, but getting both can be quite hard. Yesterday marked another important step in putting the pieces together. Thankfully, Joey Bacala is happy to go through numerous iterations of positional tweaks and setups as we try to find the right balance. There is still more work in front of us, but we are on the right track. Test, adjust, test, adjust. Repeat till infinity.
