Straight onto the podium in his DJR kit, Rafael's race results are well known. He's added further strength to our elite team in 2017 - winning Dash for Cash and grabbing 4th at the hotly contested Armed Forces Cycling Classic in his first season in Black and Orange. He's raced in some of the biggest races in the country, and is a threat in any type of finish.

In 2016 he was the Antigua and Barbuda National Road Champion and the Castelli NY Cycling Series Sprint Competition Winner.
A racer who can relied upon to bury himself to chase down a break, and then recover to finish high enough to defend his Master's Leader's jersey? Jose is the man. He joined his son Jason on our Elite team in 2017, and has made a massive immediate impact in the P1/2 field.
Ray is a Cat 1 with possibly more experience than the entire rest of the peloton combined. A pivotal and popular figure in the NYC racing scene, he's the guy you can guarantee to be smiling on the start line. Don't let that fool you. Ray has the ability to rip the legs off us all. Dave Jordan Racing is proud to have him on the roster.
Much of the success of our elite team since 2013 can be attributed to Franklin's unselfish support for his team mates in every race. He is the ultimate workhorse, utilizing his power and race smarts to set up the team for top results. In addition, he consistently pays off with individual results such as claiming the overall KOM jersey in the 2014 Lucarelli & Castaldi Cup series.

He's a savvy racer, who can be relied on the work for the team and has been putting in the miles this year in our quest for leaders jerseys in the big races.
