Slowly finding their way

IUCC has taken a little criticism over the past weeks due to the seemingly poor state of 'A' racing at the collegiate level. A few years ago IU was a decent Mens TTT away from winning a national title in an era that coincided with the attendance at IU of Rashaan Bahati, Jenn Wangerin and Mike Kehrberg. This year there are no riders of such proven quality but these things can go in cycles (pardon the pun). Only Ren-jay Shei has any real experience of racing at this higher level so the team will take some time to find it's feet. Racing this weekend is at Lindsey Wilson College in southern KY and the twittersphere suggests that IU are putting in a better performance. Scott Cantanzaro and Matt Kiel both finished in the top twenty of a highly competitive Mens A race whilst Dave Richardson-Rossbach again gave IU a win in the Mens B, after Chris West was solo off the front for over 35 miles earlier in the race.
Racing moves to Depauw next weekend so the IU representation will likely increase, particularly in the Womens categories. Small steps...
