Belgium; a beautiful landscape in Europe where there is plenty to do and plenty to see. Many travel to Belgium for vacation, sometimes for work, other times to visit distant family. However, Belgium is much more than a brewery of diverse people in the middle of a continent. It houses some of cycling's most elite riders, all the way from professional teams...
Pedaling through freezing cold weather (31 degrees to be exact) while wearing skin tight clothing does not sound like a fun way to spend your weekend. To trek through biting weather, with wind pounding your face, with cold chills rushing up and down your body, you can't be weak. These are the exact conditions the Jesuit cycling team had to...
With tumbleweeds rolling across the smooth, black asphalt road, the scene looked like that of a western movie.

Recently, the cycling team traveled to Texas A&M University to compete in a road race, a time trial, and a “criterium” race, a short race usually completed on...
Their breathing is heavy. The Jesuit cyclists keep telling themselves to just keep pedaling. As the hot Texas sun beats down on them, the remaining cyclists see the end in sight. A few of them attempt to break away from the pack, but it is far too early. Then, all of a sudden, the final leg of the race...
Boarding the team's inaugural flight to the out-of-state race, the Jesuit cycling team soared thousands of feet in the air, instead of their usual two wheels on the ground.
