The Cedar Hill Race Festival is, at its core, all about raising awareness of and money for the Texas High School Cycling League.  It is also about a different concept in bicycle racing where different disciplines can gather together on one weekend to celebrate racing.  This is fitting because in scholastic cycling it is not about just one discipline but about encouraging balanced cycling with an emphasis on the major disciplines.

So, why not include all these disciplines in a single weekend?

We hope to grow the event into a premiere regional event drawing racers from around the region and the country. Our dream is to eventually attract scholastic teams from all over the country and be able to make it an exclusively scholastic event as a big celebration of all things scholastic cycling.  This, of course, is still years down the road.  Right now we just focus on providing a quality event with a diversity of racing experiences for you, our racer.
