Diaz brothers set to compete at Spider Mountain

Posted September 16, 2022

We love hearing about our student's strengths and talents! And high school brothers Edward and Andrew Diaz are passionate about mountain bike racing. This weekend, the Diaz Duo will compete at Spider Mountain Bike Park in Burnet, TX. 

The Diaz brothers have been in Splendora schools since elementary and have always had a bike. But since the pandemic, Edward (SHS senior) and Andrew (SHS sophomore) have gotten serious about riding and racing. They are now part of the Proline Cycling team and spend many hours practicing and preparing for events. 

Their parents, Edgardo and Meisy Diaz, enjoy watching their sons compete both in school (Edward is the varsity soccer goalkeeper) and outside the school, but added “Our ultimate goal as a family is to continue to enjoy the sport and inspire others to enjoy the outdoors!"

Saturday's event is the 1st race of the Texas Gravity Enduro Series held through the Team Trail Party. The Diaz brothers are looking for a spot on the podium and we hope they find it! Good luck Diaz brothers!
