TAKIN’ IT TO THE STREETS

Maverick Classic takes over downtown

The Colorado Mesa University cycling team’s quest to be the best in road racing will be on full display this weekend.
The Maverick Classic, which also serves as the Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference Regional Championships, will take place Friday through Sunday in the Grand Valley.
CMU won an overall Division II cycling championship last year, but came up just short of the road-racing title last May, finishing second.
This year, the Mavericks have more depth and more talent as they prepare to host the best cycling teams in the Rocky Mountain region. This also will be the final race before the national championships, which will take place May 2-4 in Richmond, Va.
“We have a very strong team this year, we should do well,” CMU head coach Patric Rostel said.
