Summer Racing Update

The pleasantly mild summer we’ve been enjoying here in the Midwest has been great for the summer bike racing scene.  Our guys have traded cinders for pavement for the summer and have been enjoying a successful summer of racing so far.  Earlier this summer, Tyler Hart (returning senior) captured the Indiana State Criterium Championship at Speedway, Indiana and more recently he secured the IN/KY Crit Series overall title with a solid second place at the Mass Ave Criterium.

Off the road, Spencer Brauchla has been putting his legs to good use on the velodrome, making several trips up to Major Taylor Velodrome in Indianapolis, IN in preparation for the Collegiate Track National Championships in September.

Nick Hartman, Mike Chettleburgh, Charlie Hammon, and Luke Kalbfell have each added several top-10 finishes as well. Everyone is excited to return to Bloomington later this month as classes resume and we get ready to tackle another year of academics, rollers, cinders, and Burger King.  Keep an eye out for the annual Fall BKBash, we hope to see everyone there!
