Ripon College To Offer Cycling As Intercollegiate Sport

Ripon College has announced it will offer cycling as a team sport for men and women beginning with competition in mountain biking next fall. The Red Hawk cycling team will compete at the Division 2 level as a member of the Midwest Collegiate Cycling Conference against colleges and universities from Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.

Ripon is the first college in Wisconsin to offer cycling as an officially sanctioned part of its athletic program and is only one of several throughout the country.

Ripon has named Ric Damm as its first cycling coach. A competitive amateur cyclist, Damm brings more than 10 years of racing experience to the position. Since 1997, he regularly has competed in the Wisconsin Off Road Series (WORS), the largest statewide mountain bike race series in the United States. He continues to compete at the second tier level of WORS, finishing as high as seventh overall at Iola Winter Sports Park in September.

Damm also competes as a Category 4 road cyclist in Wisconsin Cycling Association (WCA) events and at the Category 3 level in WCA cyclocross races. He is a member of USA Cycling, the International Mountain Bicycling Association, the Wisconsin Off Road Bicycling Association and the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin.

"Hopefully, I can transfer my experiences training and racing into support for our student-athletes who want to push themselves to new levels of competition in a sport that they love," said Damm, who is also Ripon College's director of publications and institutional image. "Cycling is a passion for me, and I plan to build this program with young men and women who share that passion."

The National Collegiate Cycling Association (NCCA), founded in 1985, is a standing committee of USA Cycling. NCCA administers, develops, promotes and governs collegiate cycling throughout the United States. The country is divided geographically into 10 different conferences by state. Schools compete within their conference for all events culminating with conference championships. Each conference qualifies teams to attend annual national championships.

"Devil Take the Hindmost" Cyclocross Race

Devil take the Hindmost is also known as "Miss and Out" which is at every lap on our modified course the last rider is pulled. Riders will get their heat placements by drawing numbers (to keep things as fair and random as possible). This will be done for 3 laps and then this will be bell lap for this heat. We will run as many heats as needed and the top two or three riders will move on to the Angel Category. The rest of the riders who were not pulled will move on to the Mere Mortal Category. The pulled riders will move on to the Devil Category. There will then be a final race in each category to determine the overall winners in each category.

Rumor has it we might "find" some PBR in the woods Bring Cross or Mountain Bikes, maybe even your old road bike Email Steve R @ cyclokross@yahoo.com with questions

Angel Category: 1st, 2nd, 3rd Awards
Mere Mortal Category: 1st Place Award
Devil Category: 1st Place Award
