The Texas Mountain Bike Racing Association was formed in the summer of 1996 by the promoters of the Texas Championship Series races in an effort to bring added continuity and professionalism to the series. Today, The TMBRA calendar has races all across the state of Texas featuring a wide variety of race courses. Ranging from Desert singletrack in the western part of the state to the twisty trails in the Piney Woods of Eastern Texas and Louisiana, The races promoted on the TMBRA calendars offer mountain bike racers all concievable types of terrain.

All TMBRA races feature USA Cycling recognized classes and categories, as well as an active Junior program and the groundbreaking "Kids Cup" program. Thus, regardless if you are a seasoned veteran in racing or if you are looking for your first race opportunity, there is a race for you.

The TMBRA board is made up of two representatives from each race. As well as representatives from various cycling clubs. These representatives bring a broad base of experience and knowledge with Cat 3 to Cat 1 class riders, along with bike shop owners, land owners,and bicycle activists.

The TMBRA Executive Board Officers are:
President: Scott Schaefer
Vice President: Jim MacDonald
Treasurer: Lisa Nye-Salladin
Secretary: Nancy Newman Goodnight

Some Words About Rider Courtesy And The Environment
It has been brought to our attention that a good number of riders who use gel or other energy products drop the wrappers on the trail, as they are racing. A number of racers have complained that this is distracting while land managers and clean up volunteers have pointed out that these are havens for fire ants and a sure-fire way to get stung. We ask that all riders place empty wrappers in their jerseys. The rider has to reach into his jersey to pull out the product, why not put the waste in the same place?

As land users we must be responsible in our actions whether we are out pleasure riding or racing. The environment that we can harm by being careless knows no difference.

Rider Representatives
Two Rider Representatives are available to racers in Texas to make their voices heard to the TMBRA Board of Directors. Currently the Rider Representatives are:
