Cyclocross for DSC

Dalton State Cycling made its very first foray into the peculiar event known as cyclocross. It is a cross between mountain biking, trail riding, and an obstacle course. DSC was represent by our team president Julian.

In his first cross race ever, on a Panzer tank of a bike (easily 35+lbs bike), he rolled out and proceeded to pick off other racers one by one. JZ finished quite well with a 12th place finish. Post race JZ remarked that racing cross could be tougher than some road-race criteriums.

The race was deceptively straight forward, but allowed the racers no rest or recovery as each fought for position and tackled the undulating course. After the 30 minute race each participant was cooked but all had a blast. 

DSC hopes, time allowing, to participate in more cross events as it provides a fun and very challenging way of racing your bike, maintaining fitness and having blast while doing so.

So where is Dalton State Cycling after last season?

We are here and training hard to be ready for another great road season. The team this year consists of Julian Zehr, Nolan Wehr, and Javier Menjivar.

Julian will be starting out in the top-level A group and vying for the overall win in our conference.

Nolan is slated to start in the B group and hoping for a quick upgrade to the A group to be lieutenant to Julian.

This year we introduce DSC newest member, Javier Menjivar. Javier will start out in the novice, D category, and will likely advance quickly into the C field.

Similar to previous years, we are a small team with very bold goals. This year our team will fight to win the team competition for DIV II schools, and the individual win in the A and D field.

Also new for this year will be a foray into cyclocross. We are planning on using the short but fun cross season to add some spice to our training schedule and get some fall racing our legs.
