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...

West Virginia MTB Weekend Recap

Sep 24, 2015
 The App State Cycling team sent 10 riders to West Virginia last weekend for conference racing at Big Bear Lake.  It was not as mountainous as we’re used to, but there were some good descents nonetheless.Saturday started with a Super D gravity event.  It was run as a mass start, so the whole shot into the woods was critical.  Through the chaos, App State came out on top.  Hayden Miller and Matt Moosa ran one and two in the Men’s A.  In Men’s B, Jordan Bouldin and...

Up in Virginia, Saturday was a muddy, rainy day on the course. The trails were flowy with some root sections and short, fast climbs. Van Hubbard came in 4th in his...

William and Mary MTB Recap

Sep 7, 2015
This weekend nine members of the cycling team traveled to Williamsburg, Virginia for the first mountain bike race of the 2015 season. Race weekends are always good for team bonding, (especially when you are stuck in the car together for six hours of travelling) but spirits were high and we were excited to start racing again. Everyone was an experienced rider, but five of the racers that went were new to the team, so it was great seeing them in App State kits for the first time. This was a...

MOUNTAIN BIKE NATIONALS RECAP
