Blast from the past.

Whoa! Has it been that long? A pal forwarded this link to me. Collegiate cycling rules almost as much as cross rules.

A bit of trivia. The blue and white bike shown in the article was one of the first two bikes I actaully painted. The other was painted the same, but built for my future (and current) wife. Her bike has been retired for something new and fresh, but her first one is still built up with the original parts. Mine was sacrificed to the R&D gods when I cut it apart 5 years after it was built. Much to my happiness and dismay, it looked just fine inside. I was happy the fabrication was in good order, but if I had known that ahead of time, I wouldn't have cut it up!

well financed? I was treasurer at Penn State back then and we had no more $$$ but about 1000 extra riders :) Man I loved that scene.
