. This scholarship will help me not worry about working in the middle of the season when I want to be concentrating on my bike and my studies.”
Goodrich has been a member of the team for the past two seasons, and currently serves as the Team's Vice President as well as Race Coordinator for the Beaver Meadows MTB Festival.
Avid road cyclist John Parks said, “The heart of Rams Cycling is giving students the opportunity to foster a passion for riding.”
Parks helped foster such opportunities when he created the Ride Coordinator position in the fall of 2004, and continues to do so as the 2005-2006 Team President.
Veteran team member Nathanael Ksiazkiewicz said, “It is very fulfilling to have watched the team grow to a place where they can award scholarships every year. I am excited to be one of the recipients this year.”
Ksiazkiewicz has been an influential member of the team for four seasons, creating the Friends of Rams Cycling alumni booster, as well as racing in both mountain and road disciplines.
Donald Estep, faculty advisor for the team said, “The Scholarship Committee had a difficult time awarding only three scholarships given a talented pool of applicants combining strong commitments to academic performance, racing at a competitive level, and supporting team activities.”
The Scholarships and Team Development Fund was created in 2003 with initial donations from the Friends of Rams Cycling (FRC). FRC is comprised of bicycling enthusiasts and alumni who support Rams Cycling. Created in 2003 as an athletic booster, FRC provides ongoing support for the team through events such as the RAT Ride Bicycle Tour. The team started as the Spring Creek Vélo Club in the late 1970s, and was named Collegiate Cycling Team of the Year in 2003. The team promotes multiple events including, the CSU Oval Criterium, first held in 1986, and since 1995, the Beaver Meadows MTB Festival. Learn
