High School Leadville Racing Team Heads to State
Two, Four, Six, Eight, Who do we appreciate? Leadville Racing! Leadville Racing! Goooo Team!
Okay, so this golden oldie might not be on the cheer list, but no doubt there will be some good old fashioned shouting and clapping going on this Friday at the Pep Rally for the high school Leadville Racing cycling team. These student athletes are coming off their best team performance of the year at the Chalk Creek Stampede in Nathop on October 9, as they heading to Eagle for the State Championships this weekend. So grab your pom-poms and team spirit and head on down to the Leadville Trail 100 office at 213 Harrison Avenue this Friday at 6:30 p.m. Coaches Bruce and Stacy Kelly will introduce the Leadville Racing team members, give out a few season awards, and a big send off as the team heads off to state. Refreshments will be served.
“This coming weekend, I think the team is primed to have a great result in all categories,” said Leadville Racing team coach Bruce Kelly who manages the team with his wife Stacy. “Many team members had their best race in Nathrop.”
