This past weekend our team represented IU in a MidWest Collegiate Cycling Conference race located at Lindsey Wilson University in Kentucky. We had 4 riders travel and each of us raced once on Saturday and once on Sunday. In short, of the 8 races we had 6 top 10 finishes and 1 win. Matt Green and I raced in the B category while David Ong and Shane Ruckel competed in the C’s. Dave and Shane finished in 2nd and 4th today in their first criterium ever. Matt Green took the win today and I finished behind him in 9th place. The fields for every race were 40+ and competitive. It was great to get out there and face some real competition. It felt good to get the competitive juices flowing.

We are going to be traveling to Depauw next weekend and continue to do these weekend races until Little 500 events start to pick up. These weekends are a great opportunity for our team to become closer and really understand what it is going to take to win.

I really want to thank the alumni that donated in the last week. We received over $600+ in the last 4 days. We have ordered our bike parts and look forward to having the competitive bike that we were looking for. THANK YOU!!! Without you, we would not be able to do the things we do. Any extra funding that we receive this year will go into the bike account for the following years.

I will be posting pictures from this weekends races when I get them.

Below is a nice article about the race.
