    From Velonews.com:

    Backed by wins in both the men's and women's downhill event on Sunday, the University of Colorado captured the division I national title as the 2005 USA Cycling Collegiate National Mountain Bike Championships concluded at Seven Springs resort. Tim Sharpe won the men's race and Jessica Vogt was victorious in the women's race as the duo helped contribute just enough points to surpass Fort Lewis College and unseat the defending champions in what turned out to be a tight two-school race for the championship.

    I think I wound up 15th in the DH. I crashed off the course and it took like 20 seconds for me to get back on. I did get 3rd in the 4x, allthough they think I got 4th.

    Brian Buell, another Colorado local, took the DII DH and a 2nd in MX. Kid is quick, look for him destroying semipro next year.

    Congrats to Andrew Parson(Lindsey Wilson College) for winning Div. 1 mountaincross. That makes two yrs in a row that Lindsey Wilson had a gravity event national champ(Charlie Mooney in Dual slalom last yr.).

    No doubt about that. Top 4 were all Colorado schools, this state owns for collegiate mtbs. Overall I was impressed by all the races this season, see everyone next year. Collegiate Nats will be going down in Angel Fire in '06, so hopefully the race can be snow and rain free.

    As was mentioned before the only schools that were in contention this year were Colorado schools for Div 1. Fort Lewis College, Colorado University @ Boulder, and Colorado State University. Its a shame that Fort Lewis wasnt able to take our best team available because they only lost the omnium by 10 points.
    Although since you are looking for schools in the Northeast UVM is usually the best Eastern Div1School. I am actually really suprised they werent up there in the results this year. Im not sure what happened to them.

    yeah, we got 3rd overall last year. i think they only had one entry in the xc categories this year, but the dh team is still fast.

    What can I say, I partied hard the night before. I might have been the reason for some of the UVM condo damage. I kept trying to drink my beer out of random things in there, including a wood/leather canoe thing.
    Taylor, I should be promoted.
    Oh yeah, security threatened to kick me out of the banquette within the first minute or two that I got there...fun times

    nice work, hoprefully you won practice. Getting kicked out of banquets and drinking strange things from strange things is what 2six is about. A for effort.

    I thought security got a guy throwing food too? I believe UVM was out of contention this year due to a lack of XC guys. As for other strong teams in the northeast, UNH, although not very strong at nationals is a top team in the ECCC. UVM and Penn State do pretty well too. And UMASS has a great XC squad.

    Go MIDD! Well, we had only one dude, but he did pretty well (2nd in Div.I XC...which begs the question: why is my school DI? We have less than 2400 kids and a small cycling team....whatever...). I couldn't go because of work and a lack of desire to drive that far.
