After the first collegiate mountain bike race of the season, Humboldt State University Cycling Club leads the Western Collegiate Cycling Conference. A dozen HSU cyclists raced at China Peak Resort on September 21 and 22, winning several of the events. Steven Pearl won the men’s A cross country race. Katelyn Hill won the women’s A short track. The A category races are at the highest level of collegiate cycling competition, and these riders will qualify to race at national championships in October.
Ali Osgood posted the fastest time in the Super D at China Peak on Sunday. She raced in women’s B but beat the time of every woman in all categories.
Several other HSU cyclists had podium finishes including Ali Osgood and Eli Robinson, who earned valuable points that put HSU on the top of the regional rankings above all division one and two teams.
Other HSU cyclists who competed last weekend are Sara Schneider, Ashley Hansen, Alvin Garlejo, Dylan Wright, Justin Graves, Justin Gore, Derek Roelle and Tyler Green.
