It's been a little less than a year since we last competed and IUCC is ready to kick off the season at Lindsey Wilson in Columbia, KY. There will be a TTT and Road Race on Saturday and a Crit on Sunday morning. Stay tuned for updates about results and photos!
Also, we had our Spring call out meeting on 2/19 and announced plans for the year as well as passed out kits. Please direct any questions about this upcoming year to firstname.lastname@example.org

We have made no secrets of our main goal for the season: Qualify for Nationals.
So far we have had about 8 men and 4 women show up to represent our A's squads. But everyone is welcome to come give it a shot! As second semester starts, we will be introducing more training races and drop rides to give a real feel for the racing atmosphere. Look for a call out meeting when we all get back to IU.
If you need any gear for the upcoming season please fill out your order here:
And finally, here is the racing schedule for the Spring
Sunday, March 18, 2012
After opening a gap of over 5 minutes over the field, the remaining IU contingent expanded that lead with continued attacks spurned by the Indy-bred climbing supremacy of Turner Duncan, with the course eventually leveling out once again to allow for a race average speed in excess of 22 on a particularly hilly course. An expert lead-out from John Becker delivered Turner Duncan to his third race of the season, with the Turner and Becker crossing the line 1 and 2 with Chris Passolano just a stone's throw away in a chasing group.
The Mens' D race left at 11:05 with IU being championed by Aaron Starkston, Patrick Garvey, and Robert Martin. The race wasn't characterized by breakaways but, rather, by mishaps and mechanicals, with Patrick recovering from a wreck after a rider from Illinois unclipped and went down in front of him. Aaron Starkston dropped a chain and was forced to put in a hard solo effort to regain his position in the group. After recovering from his mechanical, Aaron pulled out all the stops and sprinted around several riders in the closing 200 meters for a top ten finish with Patrick Garvey and Robert Martin following shortly behind.

Okay, it’s that time again. The first collegiate road racing weekend is the weekend of the 25th, so let’s make sure we’re ready for it. We’ll do a practice race this Saturday at noon, meeting at the Sample Gates. This is truly a come one, come all event--anyone interested in racing should come check it out! If you’ve never raced before, this is your chance to see what it’s like. And if you are an experienced racer, here’s a chance to remind yourself what racing feels like. Regardless of your experience level, it’s an opportunity to get out there with your IU teammates for a great workout.
We typically do a lap of the Forest (down Bean Blossom), though last year we did an out-and-back on 446 (due to ice on Bean Blossom). Either way, it will be familiar roads so no one gets lost, as this is not a no-drop ride...but we will all ride out together to the starting point. Attacking is welcome, as is teamwork…so come ready to race! And of course, if you have a longer ride scheduled that day, you could always add on afterward.
Come on out!
