Dea "The Queen" Bess

Dea Bess


Team “Mom” or “The Queen,” Dea has quickly become one of the most loved and respected members of the Cynisca team. She is attuned to the needs of the riders because “By their well being, they can perform their best!”

Dea was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she studied physical education in sports physiology. She has worked in the fitness & physical health industry for more than 25 years. She was also formerly competitive in long distance triathlons ( 20+ full distance Ironmans with 4 World Championships  & 30+ half distance Ironmans ) and 2x 24hours World Championship Time Trial racing.

Passionate about cycling, she began working in the industry avidly for cycling teams (four years with LUX Cycling) and at cycling events and camps around the world.  She truly understands the needs of pre, during and post racing, drawing on her personal and professional experiences. 

And she cares … A LOT!

She tells riders, “if you’re happy, I’m happy.” Maybe that’s why they always call her the “Team MOM,” and she absolutely loves it. 

Dea is proud to be part of the Cynisca Cycling Team and eager to give 100%.
