How Tornado MTB started their logo design journey

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are an offroad cycling (mountainbike) enthousiast club. Our name 'tornado mountainbikers' is a contradiction, we are no racers but rather enjoy life. Our motto is 'Hakuna Matata' (official logo on our left sleeve, see our actual cycling design attached) , which can be translated as 'no worries'.
Last year we had an average of 117 events on annual basis, both home and abroad. Yes, we wear spandex (lycra) !
The inspiration of our name 'Tornado Mountainbikers' comes from Tom Boonen, who's nickname is 'Tornado Tom'. He has had several customized designs with a tornado logo. I have added some sample Tom Boonen uploads, as well as some other stuff for inspiration, have a look.
Since the Tornado Mountainbikers logo will be printend on the shorts (legs) / jersey (front / back panel), the tornado logo and text need to be approx. inline, no stacked designs.
We want a 'tight, clean, modern' design, a bicycle preferably isn't included in the logo. Easy recognition from distance is important, something light and powerfull, nothing too complex.

To give us an idea of the overall feeling of your brand, let us know which styles you lean towards
After new sponsor deals, we are seeking for help to re- style our current outfits : this includes a new main logo (this contest), two other logo's (sleeve / backpocket) and the cycling kit in general (contests to be annonced soon).
For this contest :
We like to refresh / update our current logo design, a re- interpretation or new logo in general. The current 'tornado' graphic is something we borrowed from the internet and pops up randomly.
As we still wish to have link with the original design, the colors to be used are listed.
Attached the original logo, font type used for 'Tornado' is 'Republika Regular 20pt', 'mountainbikers' is 'Swatch IT Regular 8pt'.
Additional, you can find our actual cycling kit design.
