The San Francisco peninsula-based team Third Pillar is looking for Cat 3 riders for next season. On top of a free Louis Garneau clothing kit, riders receive incentives like subsidized winter training camps and free race entries for all participants in a race if any team member reaches the podium. The team practices almost weekly in the off-season to apply professional level tactics to amateur racing.

Third Pillar is limited to about 15 members, almost exclusively Cat 4 elites and masters. Despite its small size, it had 11 wins and 30 podium finishes last year.

Two of its riders will be racing in Cat 3 next year, which is why the team has 2-4 open slots for interested racers of that category.
