This is going to be a big information dump so please read closely.


The first high school race of the year is next weekend in Flagstaff and there is much to do.


All riders will be signed up by us and at this time we are signing up everyone except Cole.


If you go to Tucson High then of course you are on the Tucson High team. Everyone needs to have a Tucson High jersey. I have a few of them at the clubhouse, but I need to know if you still have one.


All others you will be on the El Grupo Composite team. If you have a yellow jersey please respond. I am not sure that we have enough. We should however many people did not turn theirs in at the end of the season last year, so we are unsure. If we do not have enough we are going to have to use the Blue Primal ones that were given to us.


Everyone racing in the league will have to wear all black short or primal shorts. This is mandatory. Please know that you have a pair.


I will be emailing a packing list to you all. Please pack early. Do not wait until the last minute as this just creates stress.


On Saturday during the pre-ride everyone will be required to wear their El Grupo kit if they have one.


For the Flagstaff race we will be leaving at 8:30am.


Please make sure your bike is in tip top shape before you leave.


Parents please let me know if you plan on attending and when you might be showing up. Also I want all kids to travel with the team unless crazy circumstances arise.


Parents if you are coming up please let me know if you are coming to help with the team, we have many things that need to be done. From cooking to feeding bottles to setting up tents. There is a lot to do.


All information for the race season can be found here: 



I tried to paste the gear list to help.

    I do not have a jersey from the league and I will need plain black shorts. Thanks

      What happened to the yellow jersey you used last time you raced the league? That is the one we are asking for.

  2. Catherine James

    Don and I will be leaving for Flagstaff late Saturday morning, so we should be up there around 2-3 pm.

    Ash and I are planning on coming and can help out with whatever. Mostyn does not have any yellow or el grupo jersey (although I have one he can probably wear).
