The FCS Cycling Team presents an option to women who are first time racers, up to the seasoned Cat 1 or 2 racer, who want to ride competitively and still work a “normal” 9-5 job. The team is made up of women from various demographics, ages, levels, and careers. The proudest achievement is hands down seeing how many women we got into the sport and are now seeing them come back to face another tough year of racing.

Lee Whaley and Sarah Lundeen came up with the idea after the establishment of the Domestic Elite team. FCS has long stood as a club team with an elite team. The 2013 season left a few of our female riders in a state of limbo. So, we came up with the idea to create what we now refer to as the Regional Team.
We focus mainly on races within Texas and in the surrounding states, with travel to various other states as deemed possible. The team is not restrictive to age or level. We really want to give women of all talents the opportunity to race and represent the FCS Club. We particularly look for women who we have seen or know are good ambassadors of cycling, but namely women’s racing. Our racers mainly live in the North Texas area, but there are also members in Houston and New Mexico. FCS has historically been a road team, but this year we branched more into Cyclocross, debuting our bright pink long-sleeved skinsuits. Good thing it was actually a chilly ‘cross season. We have several racers who recently took the track devo class, so expect to see FCS out at the Superdrome in Frisco, TX.
