This wraps up the ECCC road season for 2017. Congratulations to senior Alex Breakstone and sophomore Evelyn Korbich, who both qualified for Collegiate Nationals! This makes Alex is the first Bucknell cyclist to qualify for nationals all four years since the mid-2000’s!
Thanks again to all our sponsors, who made it possible for the team to have significantly more race participants each weekend this year than in previous years. Bucknell Cycling covers transportation, lodging, and race fees for all its members, in an effort to make the sport more accessible and affordable, especially to new riders - and it is our sponsors that make this possible year to year! These sponsors include: Earl’s Bicycle Store, Matty’s Sporthouse Grille, AMSEC, Giant Bicycles, Inside Track, Sun Orthopaedics, Grimes Group, Amami Kitchen & Espresso Bar, Maxxis, and Highlands Coaching Group. Thank you!

Always a huge thank you to Gary Kahler (aka, Papa K) for his very necessary and very loved role on the team - hauling-van driver, grill master, pre-race advisor and jacket-holder, photographer, observer, race info binder-keeper, and more. The team would be a mess and a half without him! Thank you also to our advisers/coaches, Ron Marquette, Bill Brunner and Eric Grimes.
Shout-out to our five graduating seniors: Alex Breakstone, Steven Robare, Ward Prescott, Ellie Perry, and Jorden Sneed. Three have raced all four years, one for two years, and one just for this past season - but the team will not be the same without you!
Another congratulations to Andrew Schlicht and Evelyn Korbich, new President and returning Vice President for the team, respectively. Matt McGauley will also take on various roles within the executive board, and former president Eli Bravo will remain on the board with a few roles, one of which is Race Director…. Will next year mark the long-awaited return of the Bucknell Cycling Classic? Stay tuned!
