**Updated**

Sunday’s Criterium’s

We began the day by racing our collegiate category events and then, after a short break, rode in the USAC sanctioned races. We racked up quite a few more wins throughout the day, and even more podium finishes.

A few high-points of the day included Cory Scott going solo for 50 minutes before lapping the field to secure his victory, Jessica Prinner, Claire Routledge, and Ashley Weaver sweeping the Women’s A podium and freshly upgraded Collin Buerger attacking on the final lap to win the Men’s B field.

The team was also able to hold onto the overall points lead and came home with the dual conference traveling trophy.

Full results below… Continue reading Kansas State’s Wildcat Grand Prix, April 6th-7th, Dual Conference Results

UT Race Weekend

Women’s A rider Jessica Prinner wrote up this fantastic race report of the UT Race Weekend, enjoy.

Don't worry Jessi, no ones back there.
Don’t worry Jessi, no ones back there.

“Going into my second collegiate road season, I was mentally prepared for this past weekend. Half of collegiate racing isn’t even about the racing; it’s about compromising among 15 people, 2 vans, lots of luggage, 4 people to a room, and figuring out where or what to eat. You can’t deny this is a big stress put on the body and mind, and it’s important to be prepared for anything. Amber Neben once told me a great saying she lives by in the sport of cycling: “Be flexible, be adaptable, overcome”. That saying pretty much explains itself.

Winter break was jam-packed with training, traveling, eating, racing, family, friends, and of course more training.

Though we have been a bit scarse with updates here on the site, we have been very active over on our Facebook page and through our Twitter account.

Another semester has come and gone

The time is here, finals are over and the semester is done. While not as busy as the spring, the fall season had plenty of excitement. Check out a few of the previous post from track nats and MTB conference for an idea of how racing went this past semester.

As the seasons and semesters change, so do the faces of MSU cycling. Though we are sad to see them go, we are proud to say that Danny Robertson, Fidel Goytia, and Sean Brown are all graduating. We are going to miss these guys, on and off the bikes. Continue reading Another semester has come and gone

Some Very Special Thanks

Thanksgiving Day is tomorrow, and we thought we would share a few things we are especially thankful for.

From Director Charlie Zamastil:

It is the time of year for reflection and for giving thanks, and cyclists who attend Midwestern State University here in Wichita Falls have a lot to be thankful for. First off, as almost the entire nation (sorry Pacific Northwest) enjoys exceptionally lovely riding weather, we here shrug our shoulders with our blend of Parisian insouciance and Texan swagger. 70s in November? But of course.

Teammate Anthony Sequera snapped this shot during his ride Monday.

Great weather is a nice bonus, sure, but not a precondition for having a great riding experience. Just ask our guys Cory Scott and Anthony Sequera, who last weekend ventured out into the pouring rain to do repeats of the 1000’ climb Mt. Scott in Lawton, OK. Or Tony Baca, Aldo Curiel, Sean Brown, Caden Burross, and Collin Buerger, who fought through 25mph headwinds all the way to Windthorst—28 miles steady into the wind, only to turn around and cover those 28 miles in 56 minutes: for the sheer pursuit of FroYo.

The Sean Brown snuck this one in while we were devouring some Fro-Yo. We earned it!

What truly is a precondition for riding—at least in any meaningful capacity—is community support. We rely on the support of the community. The Wichita Falls community fairly and happily shares the roads with us cyclists, giving us space, accommodating our slower speeds, and ensuring our safety. Consider this a collective "tip o' the helmet" to the entire community.

The Swap Meet Was a Success!

It's that time of the year again. Between family, friends, and a table full of food it is hard to get those hours in on the bike. That's why we were busy getting our time in before the break began. But, while many of us spent the weekend training, a select few headed to the EDS Superdrome in Frisco, TX, where the team hosted The Biggest BIcycle Swap Meet in Texas on Saturday the 17th .

The infield was setup for vendors from all over TX; thanks to Drew Lifsey for this great pic

This was established as a fundrasier for the team and a portion of the sales of vendor space went to help support the upcoming season. The day was a big success for all of the vendors involved and we hope to make it an annual event. For more information or to reserve a space for next year be sure to check out the facebook page.

2012 SCCCC Mountain Bike Championships

This past weekend the MSU mountain bike team went down to Solavaca Ranch for the South Central Collegiate Cycling Conference mountain bike championships. We got down to the ranch late Saturday for the conference dinner and discusion about the 2013 road season, then a campfire and camping with the rest of the teams before Sunday's racing. It was a great weekend and an awesome end to the MTB season.

The single track was littered with climbs, gravel, and some rocky descents.
