Collegiate Cycling

As a part of the Southwest Collegiate Cycling Conference, the University of Arizona Cycling Team races against other collegiate riders in Arizona, New Mexico, and West Texas. We participate in collegiatemountain biking in the fall, cyclocross in the winter, and road in the spring. We also compete at USA Cycling Collegiate National Championships in these disciplines. Team success is based on a points system. For each race during the season, riders compete in categories (A-C for men, A-B for women). Results are weighted according to category and added up across races. Thus, riders of all ability levels can contribute to the overall success of the team. We are very proud of our racing results, with top results in our conference and seven national championship titles, as well as producing two Olympians/Olympic Long Team alumni and one All-American rider.
