National Champs- Again!

Grayson Hughes, Tim Maley, Cara O’Neill, and John Noonan represented the Wildcats in Louisville, KY at the cyclocross national championships. Cara rode to a fine second place in the women’s race on Thursday and the team (Grayson, Cara, and Tim) defended the team’s relay title on Saturday. Additionally, we finished second to CSU in the team omnium (the sum of points across the women’s, men’s, and relay events) by just 1 point!

Have a safe break and we’ll see you at the first team meeting on 1/10 at 6pm in Harvill 240!

2018 Recap- Part 2

 

Robbie BMX nats

What about BMX you ask? For the first time ever in team history, we sent a member to BMX nationals in West Monroe, LA! Robbie Spanyard finished 5th on Saturday but was crashed out on Sunday during the qualification rounds. He still finished 11th after two days of racing!

What about road? Well, we’re still dominating there as well. Cara O’Neill has a lock on the women’s A points race and on the men’s side Adam Bryfogle is in the lead (over 4 of his UA teammates)! Just two weekends of collegiate racing remain before we get ready for road nationals.
