FLC Cycling Headed to Track Nationals With Confidence

FLC Cycling’s track season is once again coming to an end with USA Dean TrackCycling Collegiate Track Nationals at the 7-11 Velodrome in Colorado Springs, CO Sept. 17-20, 2015. The cycling Skyhawks rapped up training with the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference (RMCCC) championships in Colorado Springs at 7/11 Velodrome September 5th and 12th. The RMCCC Track Championships consisted of events to prepare riders for what they’ll competing in at Nationals and the Skyhawks faired well:

Track Coach Ian Burnett and the cycling staff have named the team that’ll head to the Springs. He says, “we are bringing the deepest, most experienced team to Track Nats that FLC has ever produced. The Nationals team has many members that have trained all summer at their local tracks and are coming into the week on great form.”

The FLC women and men will both compete in the Sprint (SP), Time Trail (TT), Individual Pursuit (IP), Points Race (PR), Scratch Race (SR), Team Pursuit (TP) and Team Sprint (TS). Senior Dean Haas will defend his Scratch Race win from last year and the other student athletes have been training hard in their specialties and all-important team events on their “home track”.
