Notre Dame Race Weekend

Last weekend UWP Cycling traveled to South Bend, In for two days of racing put on by the University of Notre Dame

The road race was mostly flat with a few sharp hills near the end. And did I mention it was cold?

The criterium was a wide, flat fast affair with plenty of crashes. Still wasn't any warmer though.

Can you say lucky?
