About the Program

The HPC Factory Racing program was developed in 2019 to test our products in elite level competition and just happened to become the first American born and backed factory eMTB team competing on American made bikes. Featuring Class 1, Class 3, and Unlimited Class bikes, the HPC Factory Team aims to compete across several events across the United States. We believe e-bikes are the future and there is no better way to showcase this new technology than in a race environment and competing against some of the best athletes in the world! The knowledge our racing team provides for real world data and experiences is vital to our product development and technological improvements. Want to get involved or have questions?

The Team

Lance Nelson

Age: 24 Hometown: Quartz Hill, Ca Social Media: @lancenelson_

Lance first threw his leg over an HPC bike in Early 2017, and established himself as the primary product tester ever since. He grew up racing motocross before getting into mountain biking after high school but before most recently focusing on downhill, eMTB, and overall freeriding. Confident in the air with a need for speed and a propensity for anything with two wheels, Lance is right at home racing electric bicycles. If he can’t break it, we know we are ready to release it! You may recognize him from a few of our YouTube videos and he has been an integral part of testing new products and bike designs. With several podium finishes last year under his belt, he's determined to bring home even more hardware in 2019!
