Ariane Horbach’s collegiate cycling career is down to just a few more days.
The German woman, who came to Colorado Mesa University to race and study, is at the end of her career. And she’s had a fabulous collegiate career on the bike.
Her career will end on Sunday and she will depart as one of the most accomplished cyclists in CMU history.
She’s hoping to end her career the way she started it: With a national title.
Horbach will be one of many talented riders from around the nation to watch at the USA Cycling Road National Championships.
“I am very excited to race nationals here in Grand Junction, in front of the home crowd,” she said. “That should give me that extra boost when I need it during the race. Maybe I will have more luck on home grounds.”
