Colorado Cycling Races to the Finish

BOULDER (03/13/12)– The University of Colorado Cycling team comes out on top this past weekend, winning four out of five collegiate categories.

Colorado excelled at the competition, taking the first place title in the Men’s A and B and the Women’s A and B collegiate races. The Buffs also took second place in the Men’s C collegiate race.

“The team was on fire and we all worked well together to get the wins,” said President Danny Hiller. “The team came out not only to race, but also to volunteer and help make sure everything went smoothly. It could not have gone better.”

Nearly 200 collegiate racers showed up to the competition and Colorado beat out all the competitors, giving them a huge lead in the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference.

The Citizens Race drew in a large crowd this year, with two races that consisted of over 100 people. Overall, 500 racers came out to compete and to support CU Cycling.

“It took a lot of hard work to put this race on, but it was worth it in the end,” said Hiller. “We made a great profit and the community loved the event.”
