Middlebury (extreme) Mountain Biking Team

I didn’t know until this morning in Procteur that our dear College has a mountain biking team.  We do, and they’re extreme (but don’t let that scare you away if you’re interested).  I’m glad we have a mountain biking team.  This will make me feel more legit when I tell people I go to this school.

More importantly, the team’s pretty legit.  They’re officially part of the Midd Cycling club and they compete in the ECCC (The Eastern Collegiate Cycling Conference).  Last weekend, they competed at the University of New Hampshire. Finishes included two wins by Syd Smith in Dual Slalom and Short Track, a Second place for Macky Franklin in Short Track A, a Second Place for Alex Jopek in Short Cross B (pictured above), and a Third Place for Alex Jopek in Cross Country B.  This weekend, they’ll compete at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.

The team currently has seven members. For more info check out their facebook group or email mfranklin [at] [midd]. More photos here.
