Hypercat Racing is an endurance sport performance coaching/consulting & bike fit company. We are dedicated to helping athletes improve the quality of their lives through sport.
Hypercat Racing was founded in 2001 by Rachel Sears and Philip Casanta. Sears, a professional triathlete and Casanta, a former pro MTB rider / cyclist combined their talents in coaching endurance sports and bike fitting to create a unique sport business model. Initially, as a fledgling company, Hypercat Racing operated out of a living room in the couple's home in Oakland, CA. Later, Hypercat moved to Richmond, CA expanded operations and moved into a backyard garage. Several years later, a short term experiment partnering Hypercat Racing bike fit operation with Velo Collective in San Francisco, proved that moving to a stand alone facility would best serve the cycling and triathlon community. In September of 2010 the Casantas (now married) relocated to Ventura, CA and opened a 2300' facility to provide premium endurance sport coaching services and Ventura County's only dedicated bike fit studio. 2011 is Hypercat Racing's ten year anniversary and 1/13/11 marks the grand opening of the new home of Hypercat Racing.
The Hypercat Difference

This offers our athletes the maximum service and opportunity to learn as much as possible about themselves, from their training experience and about their sport. Hypercat Racing coaches go above and beyond to ensure that you are getting the best possible experience as a Hypercat athlete. We will help you achieve your goals with intelligent training and thoughtful guidance and feedback.
