The team competed in five major “event” style races where 100 teams and more than 700 riders competed. Teams and riders come from as far away as Santa Barbara County to the Mexico border.

This year, the team raced at Lake Perris, Lake Castaic, Tehachapi, and Vail Lake. The students race in cross-country-style mountain bike races, emphasizing endurance and technical riding skills. Depending on their category, students race in events ranging from 12 to 22 miles in length.

The team is made up of 12 Temescal Canyon High School students: Gavin Crocker, Race McDonald, Kade Stoltz, Darren Cascario, Logan Hatfield, Dewey Milliken, Chace Simpson, Dylan Cascario, Isaac Renfeldt, Emmett Renfeldt, Jesse Garcia, and Taylor Mrosek.

The students train as a team three days a week but must also train an additional two to three days a week independently. The team can be found training in the hills outside of Canyon Lake’s north gate from December through May.

The Titan cycling mountain bike team was founded during the 2013-2014 school year by Kathy and Robert Parks, who are both teachers at Temescal Canyon High School. This year, the team added three parent-volunteer coaches: Tim Cascario, Shawn McDonald, and Shad Stoltz, who took over duties as the head coach.
