Lees-McRae supports one of the most successful collegiate cycling programs in the US. The squad has earned two consecutive cyclo-cross national championship titles in 2006 and 2007 and it finished second to Fort Lewis College at the 2007 collegiate mountain bike national championships. An amazing almost 10% of its small student body of about 600, are members of the college's cycling team. The Lees-McRae team is in its seventh year, making it one of the newer collegiate programs in the country. Despite its small school population, the team has been competing as a Division I school since the 2006-2007 school year. Follow the school's riders, under Coach Doug Owen, as they race toward success in road, mountain bike, track and cyclo-cross in 2008.
