RISE: El Paso Press Conference

November 27, 2018 – Today the City of El Paso announced that USA CRITS selected the city to host the inaugural RISE Cycling Talent Identification Combine & Symposium June 13 – 16, 2019.  

The multi-day event is the first-of-its-kind where high school students and college bound student athletes have the opportunity to showcase themselves in front of key coaches, administrators and sport directors from collegiate, club, elite national and international teams for selection and scholarship awards.

RISE Cycling Symposium is expected to draw over 2,500 attendees and could contribute an estimated $2.2 million in economic impact each year. The program includes performance and mental testing, educational seminars, keynote presentations, peer -to-peer interaction, innovative panel discussions and a leading brands expo. The event is uniquely open to all interested endurance-minded athletes to take part, not just those seeking collegiate recruitment and scholarship opportunities.

“RISE gives athletes a great opportunity to come together at one location to test their skills, identify future talent in the sport as well as a pathway for lifelong engagement in wellness and the endurance lifestyle, all while experiencing innovative educational programs. It’s a big moment for the space and we believe a key part of its future,” stated RISE Cycling Symposium founder, Ravi Rajcoomar.

In addition to RISE, El Paso will also host a round of the USA CRITS series in 2019.
