By Chris Baddick

The University of Colorado Cycling team executed a clean sweep of the Rocky Mountain Collegiate
Conference Championships in Durango this weekend.
Learn how the CU Triathlete Team also did very well at Nationals last weekend by winning overall team title

The 2005 National champions showed an encouraging return to form, and the team is now confident
going into the National Championships held in Ogden, UT from the 2nd to 6th May.

CU Cycling brought a 35 strong team to battle Fort Lewis College on their own turf, and it paid off.
Josh Yeaton, a senior from Anchorage Alaska, showed his form with back to back wins in the Criterium and Road Race.

A decisive hill close to the end of the road race proved enough to split the pack in the strong Men’s A field. Yeaton took full advantage and moved away from the bunch with Fort Lewis rider and Mountain Bike National Champion Rotem Ishay on the last lap, and easily crossed the line alone for the win. Josh will head the six-strong men’s team in Ogden next weekend.

The women’s team showed equal domination over the SkyHawks. The girls set off a minute behind Fort Lewis in the Team Time Trial and passed them on the road. Heather Fischer, Abby Mickey, Christa Ghent and Claire Bensard have been practicing their time trial skills twice a week all semester under the guidance of experienced Women’s coach Margell Abel. This team will be hot favorites going into Nationals.

The women’s mass-start races were equally dominated by the Buffalos. Heather Fischer, a Senior in International Affairs, battled with Sarah Sturm of Fort Lewis in both races, but edged her out on the hills of Durango to take double Gold. Heather, a climbing specialist, will be a marked rider on the start line of the hilly Ogden course.

Listen to what Allen has to say about this incident

Did you get a chance to enjoy any of Allen Lim's awesome rice cakes? No, that sucks because as of last Saturday Allen has been shutdown by the Boulder Police. I'm sure there was some law that was being broken yet somehow I find it hard to believe that this was the most serious law breaker at the time of day Saturday. Was it worth it? According to some comments on our Facebook page apparently if no money is exchanged than what he was doing is fine... at least for now until some new law comes into affect.'

I DID have a rice cake from Allen on Saturday before the Police and have to say this will be my food choice next week at the 66 mile Voodoo race in Pueblo CO. More on Allen Lim and Skratch Labs

Rocky Mountain Bike Festival moves to Superior Morgul Race Weekend

News Item: 

Organizers of the Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival and the Superior Morgul Weekend have announced an ongoing partnership to bring two of Colorado’s signature events together to create the most-exciting weekend on the state’s cycling calendar.

For the past four years, the Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival has hosted the region’s largest gathering of custom framebuilders, component and accessory manufacturers, distributors, cycling service providers, and non-profits. “It’s been incredible to see this event grow, and to see the community come together around it. Finding a home in Superior and partnering with Without Limits/Boulder Racing will allow us to really grow this event and make it a staple on the national cycling calendar,” said event-owner Carol Johnson of Miles Ahead Events, Co.

The Rocky Mountain Bicycle Festival will take place in conjunction with the Downtown Criterium on May 19th. The three-day Superior Morgul features a Friday Evening Time Trial on May 18th, a downtown criterium on the 19th, and the famous Morgul Bismark Road Race on the 20th. A smaller expo will also be situated near the finish of the road race on Sunday to entertain race spectators.
