Chasing History: Episode 1

This spring, St. Augustine’s University (SAU) took a pioneering step in sports and became the first Historically Black College or University (HBCU) in the U.S. to formally establish a cycling team. Now you can watch their groundbreaking journey unfold in a five-video series that starts with Chasing History, released today. The idea started with team co-leader Mark Janas, Ph.D., a professor in the SAU business school, who is an avid cyclist. The movement took hold as SAU and the fresh team of Falcons were inspired to break down barriers and make their own history, just as the legendary cycling world champion Major Taylor did 121 years ago.
