Club Sport: Cycling Team 2020

Welcome to the Colorado College Cycling Team fundraising page! We are an entirely student-run club promoting racing, riding, and a positive cycling culture at Colorado College. In the past few years the team has grown from less than ten racers to over 30 and we would greatly benefit from additional funding beyond what we receive from our fantastic sponsors and the school. This money will go towards paying for race registration fees, travel and lodging expenses, and uniforms for new racers.

As a team we aim to have a broad positive impact on campus cycling culture, in addition to promoting rider development and a positive competitive spirit through collegiate racing. We organize fun bike-related events for the entire students body and strive to be an inclusive avenue for student to try out riding and racing in a fun and supportive environment. As evidence of this effort, we are proud that much of the team is made up of people who had never raced or ridden seriously before CC.

On weekends when when we aren't racing, you might find us in the mountains riding our bikes anyways. We take large groups to new riding spots on weekend and block break trips where anyone is welcome, no matter experience level. Through this side of the team, we strive to inspire students to become lifelong cyclists and continue to spread the joy of cycling beyond the CC community.

Our team competes in both the mountain and road seasons of the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference, as well as track and cyclocross races around Colorado and nationally. We have had racers compete and do well on the national stage, but we are especially proud of our first time racers that find success and fun in racing at our local collegiate races. In the regular race season, the team has a great record of introducing riders to racing and developing them into competitive racers. This fall, we had junior Maddie Strasser racing in cross-country A's with Zoe Zwecker and Whitton Feer winning several cross-country races in B's, and all of our female racers frequenting the top-10 in both endurance and gravity events. Junior Colin Suszynski and Junior and team-mascot Sam Bower stepped up their game, achieving top-10's and several podiums in Men's C gravity events. Currently, we are preparing for the spring road racing season with many students excited to try their first road race!

Kit

We all know cycling is about the style. Make sure we match! Buy a full kit for a racer: bibs, jersey, and arm warmers.

$500

CC Cycling Team Sponsor

You know there's no better advertising than a cycling jersey on a collegiate cyclist as they send it off drops or sprint to the finish line. Donate $1000 or more and we will put your logo on our next kit and t-shirt order, as well as our social media.
