"Pedalling as fast as a hummingbird"- Minu
The Humming Bird crew was formed by Minu, who decided to make a biking crew to join the "League of Street". His long-time friend June, who left his previous crew with him, and the school president, Jay joined the team. They were later joined by Shelly, an experienced rider from England, and Dom, who prior to joining didn't even own a bike. Vinny, desperate to find a crew to win the competition prize money, was the last addition to the crew completing the sextet to compete in the league
. Among all Minu's poor attempts at naming the crew other than "super cool" crew in which Jay strongly opposed to, they came up with "Hummingbird". The name "Hummingbird" was from the idea that a hummingbird can flap its wings 90 times per minute.
Sunny High School Principle(PRINCIPAL)
As punishment for getting involved in a fight that was recorded and posted online, the boys, Vinny, Dom, Minu, and Jay, were all suspended from school. On top of that, Jay was kicked off the student council and was no longer class president, to most of the council's disappointment. To get them ready for the up coming competition as well as give them a chance to erase the suspension from their permanent record, Dom, Minu, and Jay had to attend training coached by Principle Nick.

Cycle back down the mountain to the city
warm up - 180km bike ride from the city to the countryside
Shuttle run - the best method to improve physical strength. The last 2 standing get to sleep indoors.
Windbreaker - In their race against Scorpion, Minu came up with a strategy to direct their opponent's focus away from Jay. The plan was to have Dom and Vinny get marked in the beginning of the race while Minu, Shelly, and Jay kept their pace in the rear. At the last leg of the race, Minu would sprint to the front to break the opponent's tempo giving Jay an opening to sprint to first place
Slip stream - Riding on the tail wind of the lead biker to minimise energy loss
Drafting Tactic - Ride in a straight line where the lead rider acts as a windbreaker for their crew to save energy for the final sprint. This tactic was used in their race against Asura.
Psychological Warfare - Intimidating presence that demoralises their opponents
The crew's logo was designed by Mia, their schoolmate and close friend. She volunteered to create a design partly because it was her interest but also because of her crush on Jay. We see her working hard and sketching out designs on her notebook during school. She had connections to a clothing company who helped her print the logo their uniform.

Out of sheer will and high spirits, they were able to keep up and complete the training with Mr. Nam and the rest of the Hummingbird crew. Like Gilbert, they were officially able to join the Hummingbird crew.
Gunn Industrial High School
- Gilbert Hwa (Self proclaimed Vinny's Right hand man) - He guilt tripped Vinny into letting him join their intensive training. It was clear that of the freshmen, he was the weakest both in skill and endurance but he still refused to give up even when Vinny asked him to leave. Feeling the shame of being last place, Gilbert lashed out and attacked Vinny's ego saying he's all talk for someone who's not number one on the team. Since then, Gilbert's words haunted Vinny, as if mocking him for being only second best to Jay.
