Send Georgia Tech to Collegiate Road Nationals!

christian and hodges

After a full spring semester of racing, our category A riders, Andrew Hodges, Christian DiCenso and Ryan Collins have qualified to attend the 2014 Collegiate Road Nationals in Richmond, VA from May 2-4. This year, the course is a test-bed for the World Road Championships in 2015. It’s a HUGE honor to be representing Georgia Tech on such a prestigious course and this is our first time sending athletes to Road Nationals since 2010.

We need your help to pay for gas (using a Georgia Tech supplied vehicle), hotel and food for the racers over the weekend. We’ve secured $547 of preliminary funding for gas and entry fees from the Georgia Tech Student Government Association, but we still need additional funding for entry fees, gas, hotel and food to reach our calculated budget of $1508.42 (The target amount is $960 to make up the disparity between SGA funds and our budget). To donate, follow this link http://tilt.tc/z0ib to our Crowd Tilt campaign.

Lukas, Namrita and Josh - 5th D1 Team Relay

Lukas, Namrita and Josh – 5th D1 Team Relay

The team had a killer time at Nationals in Beech Mountain, NC this past weekend. With a cold snowy start to the weekend, it finally warmed up come Sunday in time for Lukas Grob, Joshua Longenecker and Namrita O’Dea to earn a 5th place medal in the Division 1 Team Relay! Namrita also placed 19th in the Short Track race on Friday even after a spill, redeeming herself with a solid 10th in the women’s D1 XC race on Saturday. Lukas Grob and Joshua Longenecker placed 20th and 46th respectively in Short Track and 31st and 38th in XC. A fantastic showing by our Yellow Jackets, two years in a row!

Georgia Tech is out for the victory

It’s the eve of our first outing of 2013 on The Flats, and RATS, it’s time to brush up on your fight songs. If you’re not getting dirty in Alabama tomorrow, then you’d better be singing your heart out in the stands!

Don’t disappoint Bobby. Learn your songs.

White and Gold

Oh, well, it’s up with the white and gold,
Down with the red and black,
Georgia Tech is up for a victory.
We’ll drop the battle-axe on Georgia’s head,
When we meet her, our team is sure to beat her.
Down on the farm there will be no sound,
‘Till our bow-wows rip through the air.
When the battle is over Georgia’s team will be found
With the Yellow Jackets swarming round! Hey!

Ramblin’ Wreck

I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer,
A helluva, helluva, helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer,
Like all the jolly good fellows, I drink my whiskey clear.
I’m a Ramblin’ Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer.

Oh, If I had a daughter sir, I’d dress her in white and gold.
And put her on the campus, to cheer the brave and bold.
But if I had a son sir, I’ll tell you what he’d do:
He would yell, “To Hell With Georgia!” like his daddy used to do.

Oh I wish I had a barrel of rum, and sugar three thousand pounds,
A college bell to put it in, and the clapper to stir it ’round,
I’d drink to all the good fellows who’d come from far and near,
I’m a rambling, gambling, Hell Of An Engineer! Hey!

 

When you say Budweiser…

First week of school

college-freshman

The first day of class is less than two weeks away and we’re preparing vigorously to start the semester on a firm stroke (oh yes). The next few FASETs are the last chance to appeal to a captive audience of freshmen; after número 7, we have a full weekend of open racing at EAV and Grant Park, the last hurrah of the summer before mountain season is in full swing.

Our first meeting is on Monday the 19th at 8PM in CRC 249. This one’s for the curious and mildly interested, no cycling jargon here, just come and hang out. We’ll have a low key night with free pizza, conversation and lots of Q&A. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll get a tap for the Cypress Street after-party. Maybe. But you gotta be cool.

That first week we’ll have easy rides everyday and then we head to the Dick Lane Velodrome on Saturday where we’ll be hosting our very first Collegiate Track Cup. It’s a perfect chance for any of you beginners to get a taste of racing AND get certified for the track, for only $30! It’s normally $60. The next day, for folks who like to get dirty, we’ll go up to the trails at Blanket’s Creek for a mountain bike skills camp with ORGT. This one’s completely free. And Monday we’ll have another meet n’ greet for all you bums that missed the last one.

It’s gonna be an action packed week, so hold off on that homework and skip the freshmen hall socials. You won’t want to miss this!
