Unlike professional racing, it's the nature of a college cycling team that each person rides to earn points for the whole team rather than just for themselves. It's that unique spirit that forges deeper and lasting connections among collegiate cyclists that last well after their college riding days are over.
On the Fort Lewis College Cycling Team, that camaraderie has also shaped a championship cycling program that today is the gold standard in collegiate cycling.
The Fort Lewis College Cycling Team was born in 1994. That year, in its first intercollegiate competition as a club sport, the new team won the inaugural National Collegiate Cycling Association mountain biking national championships. The team's first uniforms were t-shirts donated by the downtown Durango Diner, where club members would gather before their morning training rides.
Since then, the cycling world has come to know the Fort Lewis College Cycling Team – and the team's jerseys. Since that first season, our college cycling team has continued its roll, winning national championships over 20 more times in mountain biking, cyclocross, and road racing.
Our college cycling team has been ranked USA Cycling's #1 Division I team in the nation four times (2007, 2009, 2010, and 2011), competing in five disciplines:
