San Diego Origins of the Team

Fly Vaustralia Presented by Successful Living has its origins right here in San Diego.
Before combining with its counterpart in Australia, Successful Living has be managed by local San Diegian Steve Hegg. This year Successful Living asked for help from North County Cycling Team Swamis to grow the team. The three way partnership of Vaustralia, Successful Living, and Swamis Cycling Club has enabled San Diego to have a local team riding the Tour of California.
Every San Diegian should be following and cheering Fly Vaustralia on Stage 8 of the Tour of California.
