The Western Carolina University Cycling Team won the Distinguished Club Sport Award of the Year on April 21, thanks to the growth and forward direction of this year’s team members. Hosting our inaugural road bike race was a big step forward for our team and an event that we would like to host again next year. The supplemental revenue the team accrued this year will propel the team to new heights this Fall during mountain bike season. It would be great to see at least one or two WCU riders compete in Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals next year and to vie for a place on the podium on the conference omnium.
On Wednesday, the 23rd, a couple of WCU Cycling Team members will be racing in the Ring of Fire crit series in Asheville and this weekend we will participate in Issaquena’s Last Ride in Walhalla, SC. The team will be out in full force this Sunday helping out with the Cullowhee Bicycle Rodeo.
