Steel City Showdown Success! - Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

Tartan Cycling hosted the first ever collegiate race weekend in Pittsburgh on March 22-23, 2008. The weekend, presented by The Weinberg Group, featured an epic road race in Murrysville, PA and a can't-believe-that-just-happened criterium over the 6th and 7th street bridges in downtown Pittsburgh. About 200 collegiate racers attended alongside 75 local USCF racers. We received nothing but praise for the top quality race. The only question people had as they left was, "When are you doing this again?"

Racing in Philly! - Monday, March 10th, 2008

Tartan cycling represented in Philly this past weekend. After being forced to turn around by a winter storm last weekend, we finally made it to a race. The weather wasn't much better this time though, with the Saturday road race getting rained out and converted to a very soggy downtown crit. Sunday saw some sun, but also some 30mph wind which made the TTT and circuit race a bit more challenging. Nonetheless, the C men (Jeff, Ben, Dan, Josh) fought their way to some strong pack finishes.

Spring Semester! - Tuesday, January 8th, 2008

It's spring semester and you know what that means - Road Season is coming! CMU Cycling will be braving the cold to prepare for the ECCC race season which begins March 1st at Rutgers University. This season looks to be spectacular! With 4 guys in Men's C (Josh, Dan, Ben, Jeff), some outstanding new talent in Men's D (Devon, Tony), and our killer women's team led by Anne-Marie! And back again for this year is the Intro category for newcomers to the sport! Yours truly raced Men's Intro all last season and it was great! Also on the schedule is a Pittsburgh race hosted by CMU Cycling and UPitt Cycling. Stay tuned for more info on that!

I wanna go fast!

What a Weekend! - Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

The cycling gods shined brightly on the CMU Cycling Club this past weekend. Not only was the weather amazing, albeit a bit chilly, but CMU Cycling was representing all over!

On Saturday, Mike Cruz and Ben Stephens contested their first cyclocross race in Ohio and placed 1st and 2nd (results) in the C race. On Sunday, Ben attended the first local Month of Mud series cyclocross race of the season (which had a HUGE turnout!) and won the beginner category and would have placed 15th in the Sport category

Also this past weekend, Aaron Hoy and Mike Chen double-teamed the collegiate 6-hr Enduro (results) and Dual-Slalom races held by West Virginia University. On Sunday Aaron, Zhi Hao Poon and new club member Shing Ee Tan battled gravity at the WVU Downhill collegiate race.

Mountain Bike Season! - Monday, September 10th, 2007

This year's mountain bike season started this past weekend at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. Josh, Ben and Poon (shown below) represented CMU at the XC and STXC races. The XC race was a grueling 6 mile loop over boulders, logs, hundreds of feet of climbing, and little streams that left the three C riders bruised and bloodied. But that could not stop CMU Cycling, Josh went on to put in a high-placed finish at the STXC race, which was a short loop with a quick climb up a fire road and a fast winding descent down a single track.
