Congratulations to all MWCCC riders who raced at cyclocross nationals this weekend in Madison, Wisconsin. The conference was well represented in the collegiate events with highlights being Marian University’s first and second in the women’s race and win in a tight omnium competition. Lindsey Wilson and the University of Wisconsin-Madison were tied on points, finishing the Division 1 team omnium fourth and fifth, respectively and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire finished fourth in the Division 2 team omnium.
Congratulations to the Marian University club for being named USA Cycling’s Collegiate Club of the Year for 2011! More information, including other category winners, can be found at http://www.usacycling.org/news/user/story.php?id=7277.
As has been pointed out a few times in emails, anyone hoping to compete at cyclocross nationals must have a 2012 collegiate license, which means that your school’s team must be registered for 2012. If you have already, make sure your team is registered before schools – or USA Cycling - shut down for the holidays because registering a team requires the school’s signoff! More information (links to check if your club is registered, forms, etc.) can be found in this message.
