Unlike many American domestic teams that have come before them, L39ION of Los Angeles has no grand ideas of becoming a stereotypical WorldTour squad, and the very notion of such a plan is something that the team’s founders, brothers Justin and Cory Williams, are wholeheartedly against. Instead, the ethos of the team is to develop a grassroots base within Los Angeles, and then beyond that, encourages cultural diversity, opens up doors for aspiring young riders, and creates a platform for those voices to be heard. They may not have WorldTour status or plans to race the Tour de France any time soon, but L39ION of Los Angeles has the power to change the sport for the better.

Born of African descent, Justin and his younger brother Corey have been ripping up the American racing circuit for the best part of three years, winning countless national titles between them, and solidifying themselves among the absolute elite on US shores.
