The MIT Cycling Team, made up of undergraduate and graduate students from MIT, began the road-racing season with a week-long training camp in Borrego Springs, California. In May, the team found themselves on the top step of the podium at the USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships in Ogden, Utah. This has been one of the most successful racing seasons in the history of the club, built on the successes both on and off the road for the past several years. MIT was well-represented in all races and categories at each of the nine Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference weekends. Thirty-seven individuals raced for the team from freshmen to graduate students and ten riders were selected to race in the National Championship event: Katie Quinn, Yuri Matsumoto, Chris Birch, Laura Ralston, Adam Bry, Spencer Schaber, Zach Ulissi, Andrew Lysaght, Sebastien Gauthier and Joe Near. To find out more details about the riders’ accomplishments, please read the original article on the MITnews website.
