Season Suspended

While the team was on track to have another stellar season, COVID-19 came in like a wrecking ball. Last week, UA shifted all classes online and UA Rec Sports canceled all club sports activities (racing, travel, training, etc) until the end of the semester. USA Cycling has pulled event permits through early May. We’re doing our part to flatten the curve by staying home and riding solo when we do go out.

What about nationals?
Well, there are more pressing things to deal with right now than bike races. However, we hope things calm down in May and USA Cycling can get the event rescheduled later in the summer. For now, we’re focused on adapting to our new online classes, eating well, and riding solo (or with roommates we’re stuck with!)

I’m an incoming freshman…
Don’t worry! We’ll be here for you in the fall and ready to rip! You can find direction to join the e-mail list and social media pages on the About the Team page.

Stay healthy!

Upcoming events!

We’re super excited to be hosting several races in the Tucson area in the spring of 2020!

1/25: Race Against Time. We’ve moved the TT to a new course in San Manuel- the only hilly 30 KM time trial in the state! Race info and sign up are on SWSportsReg

2/1: La Vuelta a Santa Catalina Road Race. Same great course as last year in Oracle and San Manuel! Race distances vary between 27, 54, and 80 miles. Find out more here.

2/1: UA Grand Prix. We’re back on the UA main mall again for the 4th year! A short, but technically challenging course that will test your handling abilities. Find out more here.

Finally, if you are a UA student interested in racing with us, come to our info session on 1/16 @ 6pm in CAPLA 302A

End of Semester and CX Nats

Another semester comes to a close and we’ve had a great fall! We recruited our largest freshman class (8!) and sent our first full MTB squad to nationals in several years. At CX Nats, we brought back a second place in the women’s CX race (Cara), 19th and 33 in the men’s race (John; Tim), 3rd in the team relay, and 3rd overall!

We’re looking forward to spring 2020! We’ll see you soon at our home race weekend!
