NC State Cyclocross Weekend 11/14-11/15

Nov 16, 2015
The last weekend of the cyclocross season went out with a bang. We had a great turnout from our team, and they battled their way through the mud and over the barriers to get to that podium. This weekend was hosted by NC State, but was part of the bigger NCCX series, which is a statewide cyclocross race series open to the public. As a result, the race field sizes were much bigger than a normal collegiate event, and they even had food trucks on site which was a nice surprise.  Saturday’s...

Virginia Tech CX

 This weekend started off on a chilly Saturday evening in a Blacksburg Virginia slopfest. Before the team precipitation had covered the area.

Rider Garrett Clark displayed his stellar technical abilities riding the difficult course efficiently enough to grab the top podium spot, with Charlie Shuford coming in a few spots behind him.

Home Mountain Bike Race Weekend 10/10-11/2015

Oct 13, 2015
The home mountain bike race is arguably the most looked-forward-to event of the season because of the huge turnout from our team, and the home course advantages. This year was no different. This weekend a total of 22 racers from App State attended, which is the most of any race so far. Saturday we had our cross country race up on Beech Mountain at Emerald Outback, with the highest elevation trails on the east coast. These trails were full of roots and the course was split up with a long gravel...
