Nevada Cycling Takes 9th Overall at Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals

Trevor Thomassen killing his Dual Slalom run at Nationals in Angelfire, NM

The UNR Wolf Pack sent a large contingent of racers to Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals in Angelfire, New Mexico, and the team placed 9th overall in the omnium points!  This is the best finish for UNR as a team that we have on record, and it’s due in large part to the 10 male and female riders who were able to qualify for Nationals, which is a feat in itself.

Casey Coffman also placed 5th in overall points, and Kristy Peck placed 14th in the women’s individual division!  These two stood out with competitive finishes in all four events (Downhill, Dual Slalom, Short Track and Cross Country).  The team wants to thank all our sponsors who made this season a success, and we’d especially like to thank the Associated Students of the University of Nevada for their timely sponsorship of the team.  It takes a great deal of resources to send 10 student riders halfway across the country to race, and our sponsors made it possible for us to be competitive at the national level again this year!  UC Berkeley, Fresno State and UC Santa Barbara races are still yet to come, and UNR is working hard to win the overall conference title this season.
