Congrats CCC on First Place in D2 / Fifth Overall

Team race results just came out for the previous race in San Diego. Claremont Colleges Cycling received 5th place, out of 12th overall, placing just behind large D1 schools (UCLA, UCSB, SDSU, UCSD). What does that mean? CCC got first place in D2!

View the race results here (CCC and Claremont should be listed as one team).

Nice work Claremont!

San Diego Road Race Report

This past weekend was the CSUSM Road Race which was held an hour east of San Diego. The race was a 22-mile course with around 2000 feet of climb. Women's B/C and Men's C/D were subjected to one lap of this course while Men's A was subjected to three grueling laps.

Elliot DuMont, Lauren Cantwell, Kyle Block, Neal Kemp, Nick Rowe, and Mark D'Avino attended the race which culminated in great successes for Claremont Cycling. Elliot finished in fifth place in Men's A. Mark, who raced in his first race ever, took first place in Men's D with a winning time of 1:01:44. Lauren Cantwell, in her second cycling race ever again placed second in Women's B.

Some of the racers cooled off with cold beverages and delicious tacos in Tecate, Mexico after the race. The Claremont Cycling team will continue training for the conference championships in Santa Cruz on May 1st and 2nd.
