ND hosts cycling Conference


Did you find it tough to get around Downtown South Bend Sunday?

A square in downtown was blocked off for the racing course at the Midwest Collegiate Cycling Conference. Sunday the Notre Dame Cycling Team hosted the regional championship for over 2 hundred athletes, trying to qualify for the national championships.

There were eight races Sunday, many over 45 minutes long and the streets were lined with spectators from all over!

"I am really impressed with the city of South Bend blocking off the streets, putting police officers at the corners. They've put a lot of effort into this and they support the Notre Dame club obviously well. I'm impressed," says Dave Thompson, a Louisiana spectator. 

They did host a male and female open race for non-collegiate riders in the community and gave out cash prizes for the winners.
