The Cycle University Varsity cyclo-cross program will once again be taking on the Northwest cyclo-cross circuit for 2012. All of these riders and support personnel have been recruited for both their professionalism, ability, sportsmanship, attitude, committment to the sport, and the ability to work in a team setting.

U.S.G.P. #7/#8 - Bend, Oregon

  On December 10th and 11th, the Cycle U - PopCap Cyclocross Team headed to Bend, Oregon for the United States Grand Prix finals.

  The team had some success on the fast and dusty course which was a contrast to the usual mud and even snow that Bend usually provides this time of the year.  The weekend was highlighted by the spectacular rides of Sean Kelsey on both Saturday as well as Sunday.  On Saturday, Kelsey took a fantastic 3rd place followed by a nail biting 4th place on Sunday, missing out on 3rd place by two inches in a Sprint finish. 

  The team stayed at a team house together, eating their meals together, sharing Cristal champagne (provided by PopCap), and having plenty of time to reflect on a spectacular season thus far, with this being the final race for the majority of the team.
