After coming in second to host Penn State at the Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference championships this weekend, the finall tally is that MIT has claimed 2061 overall points to UVM’s 2039 and Army’s 1844. Which is just great. Thanks to everybody who trekked out to State College Pa. this weekend, in fact to every single rider who came to any of the races this season—and especially to all the newbies competing in fields from women’s A to men’s intro.
But this isn’t the end: on Monday our fearless leader Nick Loomis will be driving seventeen sleek bicycles, a bunch of trainers, and gobs of aerodynamic equipment across the western east/eastern midwest. He and Michael Hamilton are on the way to Fort Collins, Colorado, where on Wednesday they’ll meet up with Laura, Martha, Yuri, Zuzka, Tim, José, John, and Jason (phew) to kick ass in the national championships. Those sun-drenched teams from California don’t know what’s about to hit them.
