Leather cycling shoes clip into black pedals, and distinct clicks resound within the pack. A mass of riders pushes off of the ground and sprints for position in the peloton. The sun shines down on the backs of cyclists from all across Texas as they complete agonizing laps around the scenic state park. The riders, pushing through the pain of the race, take a...
Jesuit's very own cycling team has been very productive and focused this off season, despite there being no high school road races for them to compete in.

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...
Wheels spinning, the bikes turn yet another corner in the excruciatingly-tiring race. Rounding the last turn, sweat falling off their faces, the cyclists pedal hard toward the finish.
