Hagens Berman Axeon is a UCI Continental cycling team based in the United States and run by Axel Merckx since its founding in 2009. The team exists to develop young (under-23) riders through to the very top of the sport. Over the last 11 years, Axel and his team have seen 28 of their riders graduate to World Tour teams. Axeon = Axel + NEON.

Raceworks is a 3D route visualizer built as part of the original Axeon website. It used GEOJSON data to display cycle routes and points of interest, also connecting to a user's Strava account to show their most recent rides. The tool was built using THREE.js and Mapbox.
