Development Cycling Team
Hot Tubes Development Cycling Team is the longest running and most successful junior cycling program in North America. Founded by Toby Stanton in 1992, the team has always focused on developing junior cyclists. The team has more than 120 alumni and close to 20 who are currently competing in cycling professionally. Our team has produced the most professional cyclists in American history and have 3 current World Tour riders.
"WHAT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TODAY WILL SOON BECOME YOUR WARM-UP"
The Hot Tubes Development Cycling Team is about more than winning bike races. We believe that the purpose of competitive sports is to develop good people. We focus on the key elements of character that underlie personal and athletic success: integrity, honor, sportsmanship, teamwork and commitment to excellence. Our members make a significant sacrifice to compete for Hot Tubes and we believe that Hot Tubes must in turn help them grow personally, intellectually, and spiritually. While we are incredibly proud of our alumni who race professionally, most of our alumni don’t become professional cyclists. Most go on to success as college students, officers in the military and leaders in public service, business, and in their communities.
"Don't aspire to be the best on the team. Aspire to be the best for the team."
Toby Stanton founded the team in 1992. Toby handles recruitment, athlete selection, coaching, race direction, and sponsors. Toby grew up in Maryland and Connecticut and attended Connecticut College. After retiring from competitive cycling in 1989, Toby started a bicycle frame building and painting shop in Shirley, MA. He still operates the shop and it has become one of the premier custom frame painters in the country. Toby has two adult children, Andrew and Kate and seven grandchildren.
