Congratulations to all Virginia Tech Cycling Team members on a fantastic performance this spring racing season! Over the many weekends of intense competition we’ve seen excellent results from many of our talented individual riders, as well as incredible, inspirational improvement in all of our racers, veterans and rookies alike. Through our trials and tribulations we have managed to best many of the big contenders in the ACCC this season, ultimately nabbing a solid 3rd place in D1!
Even though the collegiate road season has come to a close, we cannot simply hang up the bike and hope to improve purely by virtue of our indolence, as appealing as a sedentary lifestyle may seem. This summer there are plenty of excellent USAC races in which to participate and the weather will be begging us to indulge in its boons. Even if you will not be living in Blacksburg this summer, surely there is a local club team with which you can participate in your hometown. Be sure to check out USA cycling’s website as well as bikereg.com for events in your area!
So basically, get outside and ride! We want a strong team for the upcoming mountain and cyclocross season, and an even stronger showing in the 2013 road season!
