Cyclists from 20 different schools across Texas are expected to compete in a weekend of racing hosted jointly by Texas State University and the Texas High School Cycling League.   The weekend is the fifth of seven stops in the statewide scholastic road cycling series.  Students will compete in team-oriented races by competing in one of four skill-based categories: Boy’s A, Boy’s B, Boy’s C or Girl’s.  Each category will contest three races over the span of the action-packed weekend.  The action starts at 8:00am this Saturday with a road race followed by a 3 mile mostly uphill individual time trial that same afternoon.   Sunday morning the celebration of scholastic cycling will conclude with a criterium race around the historic town square of San Marcos, TX.  Racing is open to any middle or high school student with a USA Cycling license.  Licenses will be sold on-site and solo student competitors as well as competitors from schools without cycling teams are all welcome to come join the fun.


***  The Texas High School Cycling League promotes cycling as a healthy activity and competitive sport by providing a venue for high school clubs to compete against each other and by supporting the establishment of cycling clubs in high schools throughout Texas.  The league hosts a scholastic road race series every spring and a scholastic mountain bike series every fall.  For more information visit www.texashighschoolcycling.org or send an e-mail to texashighschoolcycling@gmail.com.
