KBS/LSV is based in Baltimore, MD but draws its riders from across the Mid-Atlantic. They are noted for taking pride in recruiting riders as they join the elite ranks and helping them develop additional skills needed to become a more successful racer. Over the history of their program, they have promoted more than a dozen riders to the professional ranks, a goal KBS/LSV strives to continuously improve upon.
KBS/LSV races across the country; from South Carolina to Vermont, from Washington, DC to California. Their typical race season is from March through September each year. They focus primarily on road races and criteriums, although from time to time their riders jump into mountain bike and cyclocross races.

Achieving podium finishes is no stranger to the KBS/LSV team. In 2015, the team had over 80 top-ten finishes and won 26 races. Clearly an indication of the team-building character which is instilled within its core.

In addition, the team had a extremely successful 2017 debut as a U25 regional development team.

Primarily competing in the MABRA – Mid-Atlantic Bicycle Racing Association. They raced in all of the major events within the region. In addition the team competed in Belgium for two weeks. Highlights from the season included landing on the podium 9 times.
