Road Season is a go!
The spring Collegiate race season starts this weekend down in Southern KY at Murray State. In the inaugural event last year icy conditions made the crit course a BIG joke (so much so that the Marian coach took this riders home without riding) so hopefully things will be better this year. It seems a good group of IU riders will be making the trip and although the Men's A group is somewhat inexperienced at this level, they do have some good potential. Ren-jay Shei and Scott Catanzaro clearly have good form and will be joined by the Kielers and Matt Neibler. Midwest collegiate racing has changed greatly in recent years with the days of IU dominating due to their overwhelming numbers long gone. Marian, Lindsey Wilson and Lindenwood all have varsity cycling programs whilst Purdue and Wiscosin-Madison continue to improve. Good luck to all! The full collegiate schedule is here.
