Eighteen national titles on the line

More than 60 colleges and universities are sending teams to the USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships in Fort Collins, Colorado this weekend.

The three-day event is being hosted by Colorado State University, this year’s Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference DI champions.

The Collegiate Road National Championships will allow men and women from Division I and Division II schools to compete for individual championships in three categories: criterium, road race and individual omnium. The collegiate squads will also fight for team titles in both the team time trial event and the omnium classification, which combines results from all races, both male and female.

Defending champions Stanford University and Western Washington University will look to repeat their overall 2007 Division I and II crowns respectively.
