Elite amateur and professional development cycling team
Above and Beyond Cancer Cycling Team, presented by Scheels, is an elite amateur and professional development cycling team based out of Des Moines, Iowa. Dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles, the team’s mission is to spread awareness about cancer prevention strategies through excellence in cycling competition.
Founded in 2011 by Des Moines, Iowa Oncologist Dr. Richard Deming, Above and Beyond Cancer is a public charity with a mission to elevate the lives of those touched by cancer, to create a healthier world.
The organization takes cancer survivors on incredible adventures, even leading participants to places like Mount Everest Base Camp and the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. But the work isn’t about getting to the tops of mountains. Through their transformational journeys, participants inspire the public by devoting themselves to a life of advocacy and leading an example for healthy living and cancer prevention in their communities.

“Comfort is top notch — after a long day in the saddle I’m reminded why Pactimo bibs are so awesome!” – Michael Sencenbaugh
“The bib cuffs automatically lock into that neutral position along the length of your thigh when you put them on. Instant comfort, no repositioning required.” – David Morse
“The fit and chamois are amazing. Great comfort whether you are riding down the street or across the country. The thigh cuffs do not constrict any movement and are hardly noticeable. Large pockets and small details like the hole in the middle pocket for headphones or race radios are icing on the cake!” – Macen Van Allen
“Pactimo is the pinnacle of cycling clothing. No matter what conditions you find yourself riding in, you will always find the perfect combination.” – Caleb Vukovich
“The Alpine Jacket from Pactimo is by far the best piece of winter clothing I’ve ever owned. It fits like a jersey and provides enough insulation for a polar bear! The velcro on the sleeve ends make it possible for gloves to come on and off without battling a sleeve layering issue. Best jacket ever.” – Brian West
“When it comes to racing, minute details add up especially maintaining a constant body temp. allowing my heart rate to focus on producing power versus keeping my temp under control. From their large flip lock zippers to alternating fabric alignment my body temp maintains optimal wattage levels regardless of the conditions.” – Lincoln Eppard
