Rolfe wins first SCCCC race
BURNET, Texas - Sophomore Will Rolfe took his first ever win in South Central Collegiate Cycling Conference racing action during the Reveille Peak Ranch Bobcat Brawl hosted by Texas State University Sept. 15-16.
The mountain bike race weekend consisted of three events: short track, uphill challenge, and cross-country.
Rolfe won the Men's Class C cross-country event, winning by more than two minutes over the second-place finisher in muddy and rainy conditions. Rolfe's 51-minute time would have been good enough for sixth place in the Men's Class B race, so he may be upgrading soon.
"I'm a better technical rider and a little faster in bad conditions than the other Class C men," Wolfe said. "But I think I may race C one more time and see how that goes before I cat up.
"The cross-country course was really muddy and it had been raining since the night before. I fell off my bike like five times and am pretty beat up but it was well worth the win."
In the weekend's other races, Rolfe finished third in the 1.7-mile uphill challenge and placed sixth in short track after leading early in the race. His results enabled him to garner enough points to finish second overall in the Men's C Omnium competition.
