Dozens of thin rubber tires scrape against the city streets. The mechanical cacaphony of shifting rear derailleurs reverberates off of brick walls surrounding the roadway; a nearly orchestral statacco . “One to go- one to go- one to go!”- the announcer’s voice becomes as frantic as the cyclists are aggressive, as all enter the final lap of the race. The cyclists, seeing themselves as modern day gladiators, if only for a moment, shove their shoulders and fight to position their wheels in the...

VTech Weekend and Upcoming Home Race

Oct 4, 2016
This weekend the Appalachian State University Cycling Team travelled to Blacksburg, VA in pursuit of locking down the ACCC team omnium. Although a previous race was cancelled due to heavy rain the day before Virginia Tech decided to ignore the adverse conditions and allow us to race both days. With a difficult schedule of three races on the first day and a long XC race on the second this would be a good test of fitness for the upcoming home conference championship race, and national...

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

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. Much later the B's took the course on what would be an exciting race. This race was set to start at...
