What A Day: Armstrong Cycling Takes 3rd Overall In The State! Armstrong Cycling with their junior MLK Middle Cycling team, competed in Race # 5 of the Virginia High School Mountain Bike Series– which was also the VA St. Championship Race, at the Blue Ridge School. A brutal course in brutal heat and humidity, saw many competitors not finish. Armstrong and MLK dug deep, pulled from their training, put their team first, and had every one of the 16 riders finish!

Results are not posted yet, but Armstrong High School was able to defend their 3rd place VAHS MTB Series Ranking! We are so proud of this team– how hard they’ve trained– how much they’ve overcome– how much character they’ve developed!

To MLK Middle: Look what you guys accomplished,as a team, for a team, in just 8-weeks!! Welcome to the pipeline of success and character development that is Richmond Cycling Corps and Armstrong Cycling! You’re just getting started!
