The WSCU Mountain Biking Team raced at all six Division 2 Rocky Mountain Collegiate Cycling Conference (RMCCC) races and placed third at conference finals at the end of the season. After conference finals the team took nine riders to the 2012 USAC Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals in Angel Fire, New Mexico. Collegiate Nationals saw the top 62 schools from all over the nation, needless to say competition was tough! Over three days of endurance and gravity events, rider Owen Tulip placed 2nd in both downhill and dual slalom events and Graham Ruhmann placed 5th and 7th in short track cross country and cross country events. With solid finishes posted by the rest of the team, the WSCU Mountaineers rode to 3rd place and was the only Division 2 school from Colorado on the podium! The team could not race at their level without the continuous support from their school and coaches Jenny Smith and Ansel Schimpff, and director Dave Wiens.
