PULSE Racing currently consists of 12 students from the bachelor Movement Sciences, Medicine, Health and Life and from the research masters Human Movement Sciences and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy Sciences of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Everyone in the team gives trainings and the team is divided into different functions.

The manager and deputy manager are the face of PULSE Racing and responsible for the team. The team manager is the first point of contact for external contacts, while the deputy manager is mainly in charge of internal communication.
The Human Power Department ensures that the technical aspects of FES-Cycling, such as stimulation patterns, innovations in the field of FES and their application are monitored. Part of this department is responsible for the schedules of the training sessions, preparing the athletes for the Cybathlon and other competitions.
