The cycling team at Adams State University is an Adventure Sport at the University and an accredited collegiate cycling team through USA Cycling. The program covers all racing expenses as well as offers athletic scholarships to some of its members.

This fall marks the start of the seventh year for the Adams State University cycling  team. We have competed in two events this season. Our first races were at Grandby Ranch, and we raced this past weekend at Purgatory Resort. The team is in a rebuilding phase this year. We had three riders graduate from last years mtb team. Good for them. Chase Whitman a sophomore from Flagstaff, AZ worked hard over the summer with the goal of upgrading to Category A and qualifying for the National Championships. In his first three races this season he was 3rd in XC, 4th in STXC  and 6th in XC, Category B. Those results earned enough points to upgrade. Congratulations Chase! Our conference is tough. Chase will now be playing with the big dogs of collegiate cycling. Tyler Harrell and Ryan Watters have also been having a good time at the races. Ryan is in better condition than some past years. Tyler is gaining more experience and has improved from last tear. Next up is Western State’s event at Mt. Crested Butte.

2018 Mtb Season

Sophomore Jeremy Norris qualified for his second Road National Championships. He competed in the Road Race, Individual Time Trial and the Criterium. He improved on all his results compared to last year, and finished in the middle of the fields. Senior Mark Johnson also qualified but was unable to attend.

2018 Road National Championships

The semester concluded today. I wanted to post some photos of this years collegiate  road bike season which ended last weekend at the National Championships in Grand Junction. This years road team consisted of Mark Johnson who is a Senior and just graduated. Congratulations Mark! Sophomore Jeremy Norris a hot-shot mountain bike racer who also does road. Freshman Chase Whitman who is an experienced mtb racer and just started road racing. Freshman Jarrod Trainor who is a triathlete who joined the road team.

Collegiate racing in Colorado always brings tough weather and competition. Events in Boulder and Utah were cancelled due to snow. The guys competed solidly all season and gained a lot of experience. Chase normally placed in the top-five of  the Category C Criteriums which was impressive. He just received his upgrade to Collegiate Category B on the road. Nice! Jarrod also competed in Category C and his results improved each weekend during the season. Mark spent his fourth season as a Category A rider balancing his racing and his push to graduate. Success at school and as a collegiate racer. Well done. Jeremy is on a mission for next falls collegiate mountain bike nationals, where last fall he placed 11th, and this road racing makes him a better rider. 

We had fun this season! We’re looking forward to mountain bike racing next fall.

2018 Road Season

ASU Cycling Grizzly Grind recap and volunteer dinner. Big thanks to the Adams State Climbing Team for all their help!

Our mtb season concluded on Sunday with the National Championship Short Track event. It was wet and muddy. Jeremy Norris had another superb race. He has been consistently strong all season. Going into the race he was dreaming of a top-ten result. Early in the race he was jockeying with a group of four riders that held the tenth through thirteenth positions. I knew it was going to be a tough battle. After a few laps he was in twelfth position. In the end he finished 11 of 64. A great result, but a little bitter-sweet. Mark Johnson had a rough start to the race. He was held-up behind a pile-up at the start, and was near the back of the field. He continued to move up in position throughout the race and finished 50th. Our conference the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference once again demonstrated that we are the best in America. There were Individual Championships awarded in Cross Country, Short Track, Downhill and Dual Slalom for both men and women for Varsity and Club teams. That makes a total of sixteen individual championships. Riders from our conference won twelve of the events. There are also Team Relays for Varsity and Club teams. Our conference won both events. We are fortunate to race with the best in America every weekend. Adams State will resume competition in late February when the road bike season commences.

Today was the first day of MTB Collegiate National Championships in Missoula, MT. The course was tough. It had a 3.6 mile climb with about 1400ft. of elevation gain. The 2 mile descent was not for the weak of heart. It was loaded with steep, off-camber trail, switchback turns, and large drops. Conditions were cold, and rainy which made matters even tougher. Both of our riders had solid Cross Country rides. Jeremy Norris finished 15th in a field of 64, and Mark Johnson finished 29th. Finishing in the top-half of a National Championship is never easy! Nice job guys! Tomorrow we compete in Short Track. Stay Tuned.

After two weeks of rough weather, we ended the regular season with a gorgeous weekend at Powderhorn Resort. Jeremy Norris has established himself as a consistent top-ten rider in Category A. He continued to sail this weekend. He finished 8/54 in XC and 7/54 in ST. Nice! Mark Johnson is looking strong again after some mid-season injuries. He and Jeremy will be competing at the Collegiate MTB National Championships October 20-22 in Missoula, MT. I want to thank the rest of the team for racing hard this season. They rode well, and we had a fun team. To Seniors Eddie Jacobs, Nico Jauregui and Evan Schehrer I want to say, “Thanks for joining us, and be cool”. Stay tuned for results from Nationals. It should be fun!

This past weekend Adams State hosted the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference Championships at Angel Fire, NM. It was a great weekend of mtb racing. For the second weekend in a row the weather was a factor. Saturday was wet, muddy and a little slippery, but it”s all part of the game in mtb racing. Individual Conference Champions were decided in Cross Country, Short Track, Downhill and Dual Slalom. These are the same four disciplines that award Collegiate National Championships in Missoula, MT in a couple of weeks. In Category Men's A Jeremy Norris has established himself as a consistent top-ten rider. He finished 9/48 in ST and 10/44 in XC. That makes seven top-ten finishes from nine races for Jeremy this season. Nice work Jeremy! Also in Men's A, Mark Johnson bounced back from some mid-season injuries and finished in the top-half in XC with a 21/44 placing. Well done Mark! The rest of the team is showing continued improvement. Senior Evan Schehrer is in his first season of racing and did well in Men’s B gravity events with 6/18 placing in DS and 11/? In DH. This next week we are competing in a new event. CMU is hosting  inter conference championship where we anticipate competition from AZ and UT along with our conference. It should be fun!

The Cycling Team is part of the Adams State Adventure Sports program. Let me tell you adventure sport is the appropriate description. Saturday's XC race was a freezing, downpour, mudfest. It was wet and slippery. It got so bad that riders wheels were so impacted with mud and wouldn't even rotate. All the team was tough and competed in the rough conditions. Nico Jauregul raced his first mtb race ever, and finished in the middle of the Category C Men. Nice job Nico! Baptism by fire! Jeremy Norris continues to fly! He placed 6/43 in Mens A. Awesome! He is in elite company! The weather was so bad on Saturday that unfortunately the Downhill was cancelled. I'm sure it was a wise decision. Sunday's Short Track and Enduro were a bit nicer. Enjoy the photos! Adams State will be hosting the Rocky Mtn. Conference Championships at Angel Fire, NM this coming weekend. Stay tuned.

ASU mountain bike team team racing in Aspen and Crested Butte. Next week Conference Championships at Angel Fire, NM!

Fall is in the air. It was beautiful at Mt. Crested Butte this past weekend, but we dodged some nasty weather. The guys raced well. I'd like to welcome a new team member, Tyler Harrell. He is new to mtb racing,He finished both of his endurance races. Congratulations Tyler! Mark Johnson is still out with injuries from his bike crash when he was attacked by a dog and knocked-down. Chase Whitman, Evan Schehrer and Eddie Jacobs results were pretty consistent with where they have been placing so far this season. Jeremy Norris continues to impress in Men's Category A Endurance events. He is not afraid to try racing at the front of the field. I think this attitude will pay-off. He lead the Cross Country race twice in the first third of the race and finished 10/49 at the finish. He also lead the Short Track for the first two laps of eight laps, and finished 9/41. It's great to see the green jersey of ASU leading the A field! Nice work Jeremy! We're heading to Snowmass this weekend. Stay tuned!

I have to admit that some weeks are better then others. I guess that is why we race. Every race is different. This week was a little rough. Mark Johnson was ill, and did not race. He tried to do some easier training over the weekend and was attacked by a dog on his road bike. His carbonfiber bike is broken, and he ended up in the Emergency Room with abrasions, contusions and a low grade concussion. Thankfully he's okay, but it will take a little time to recover. Jeremy Norris was also a little ill. He rode well in XC and finished 14/40 in Mens A, but didn't race ST due to not feeling well. Freshman Chase Whitman was consistent to where he was the weekend before and finished near the middle of Mens B. New racer Eddie Jacobs improved from the week before. He beat a few more riders in Men's C. The weekend was a bit of a mess due to poor race promoter organization, but next weekend at Mt. Crested Butte will give us another opportunity to shine!
