Team Horst Sports

Team Horst Sports

Team Horst Sports was established in 1997 as a dedicated road cycling team composed of New England based riders. Horst Engineering has been the main sponsor since the founding. We celebrate 22 years of success in 2019!


The team has evolved into a diversified endurance based adventure sports team. Some members have changed to other teams, some have retired from active competition, and some members remain from the core group. As members lives have evolved and new personal, family, and career challenges have arisen, their tastes in sport have changed.

Our sports include:

  • Road Cycling
  • Cyclocross
  • Mountain Biking
  • Trail Running
  • Road Running
  • Snowshoe Running
  • Triathlon
  • Duathlon
  • Kayaking (flat water)
  • Adventure Racing


The scope of the team has diversified as well. Our members have competed both domestically and internationally, in a variety of disciplines and have achieved excellent results for a group of people who ride and run as a fitness hobby. The team has a reputation for competing actively in New England and these athletes race on the roads and trails nearly every weekend of the year. Team members have competed all over the world.


In addition to Team Horst Sports, Horst Engineering is the title sponsor of the Team Horst Junior Squad. Healthy living is at the core of our mission and we share our passion for adventure sports with a group of children, ages 6-18. Our Junior team is officially part of the Connecticut Cycling Advancement Program (CCAP).






In 2011, Horst Engineering became a sponsor of the Hartford Extended Area Triathletes (HEAT). HEAT, a non-profit club, was established in 2005 to serve the large and passionate Connecticut triathlon community. From beginners to age group champions, all are welcome. HEAT has more than 150 members and offers training swims, bike rides, and runs, throughout the year.
