We participate in road, mountain and cyclocross disciplines, and continue to be competitive in each of these year after year. This week we will be giving back with a cyclocross race open to the collegiate and non-collegiate race communities. This will be a great chance to see the team at its best while we fundraise for another successful season,” states Reid Beloni, president of the cycling club.
