Opening Salvo of the 2011 Collegiate season

SMU cycling had three first time racers line up in Austin: Spencer Guy, Kevin Dawe and Alex Philipson. These were the first races, let alone first collegiate races for the three and they had a great time, even finding time to stop at Mellow Johnny's, the Lance shrine in the basement a real treat. They joined our experienced cyclists Buzz, Frank and Nicky.

Frank and Nicky rode the A races and were usually the last of the non UT, MSU and A&M racers left, which put us in good position to qualify for Nationals as a Div 2 school. Jeff plans on racing some of the next few races, which should get us more valuable Div 2 points in the next few months.
