DISTRICT TACO RACING
District Taco Cycling was established to excite the MABRA race scene. Founded in 2014, we were a team of brand new racers focused on building strong relationships, team-based strategies, and the determination to win. We've continued to grow and evolve as a team and in or love for the sport. In 2017 our Elite team, made up of familiar, new and, always, exceptional local talent.
District Taco Racing is made up of more than 30 riders from the greater Washington D.C. area. We’re diverse in age and experience, but we are bound together with common purpose — we give our all to our team, our sponsors and the cycling community. Look for our development and elite squads at MABRA events in 2017

In 2009, two neighbors got together over some homemade chips, salsa and guacamole and decided to launch District Taco as a food truck. District Taco has since grown and now operates multiple locations in and around Washington DC.
District Taco's mission is to serve quality Mexican (Yucatan style!) food that is fresh, simple and healthy. All food is made fresh daily from quality ingredients. District Taco strives to limit its impact on the environment by serving in environmentally-friendly packaging where possible.
