ACCC Podiums Three Times in ITT

OGDEN, UT — The 2013 USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships began Friday with the time trial in Antelope Island State Park. With 400 competitors from over 100 schools, competition for Stars-and-Striped jerseys is increased.

On a sunny day with temperatures just over 60 degrees, the teams contested the 33-kilometer team time trial in the morning before competitors vied for national titles in the 20-kilometer individual time trial in the afternoon. This marked the first time the individual time trial was among the events held at the USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships.

Individual Time Trial
The Division I men individual time trial winner is Spencer Oswald (Dubuque, Iowa/Lees-McRae College), who posted the day’s fastest time, finishing in 27:15.94. His closest competitor, Dillon Caldwell (Eugene, Ore./University of Oregon), finished over 90 seconds slower than him. While there was a gap between Oswald and Caldwell, the margin between second and fourth was only .21 seconds. Local rider Mitchell Peterson (Salt Lake City, Utah/University of Utah) finished only .09 seconds behind Caldwell and just .12 seconds ahead of Robert Chrisman (Austin, Texas/University of Texas at Austin), who placed fourth. Matt Gittings (Indianapolis, Ind./Marian University) rounded out the top five, finishing 1:39.00 behind Oswald.

The top five of the Division II men’s individual time trial were faster than all of the Division I men except Oswald. Michael Burleigh (Denver, Colo./University of Denver) was the fastest of the bunch, finishing in 27:36.85, only 10.03 seconds ahead of the second-place rider, Jeffrey Clause (San Jose, Calif./Santa Clara University). Payne Griffin (Birmingham, Ala./American University) secured the bronze medal, edging out Matt Lyons (Denver, Colo./University of Denver) by only .01 second. Daniel Holmdahl (Hanover, N.H./Dartmouth College) rounds out the top five, finishing 43.50 behind Burleigh.

Jessica Prinner (South Elgin, Ill./Midwestern State University) topped the Division I women’s field by over 40 seconds after finishing her individual time trial in 31:11.59. Rosalyn Zylkowski (Seatac, Wash./Washington State University) was 42.52 seconds behind Prinner to ride away with the silver medal. Caroline Moakley (Cary, N.C./North Carolina State University at Raleigh) was only 1.36 seconds faster than Danielle Haulman (Davis, Calif./University of California-Davis) to earn third place. Mikayla Lyman (Boise, Idaho/Lindsey Wilson College) finished fifth, 1:40.85 behind Prinner.

“It’s a big deal and I was super excited when I saw that they added this event because we only had three girls this year, and I’m suited well to it,” Prinner said. “So, I came out and I performed my best, and I’m very content with my performance.”

Jasmine Hansen (Grimes, Iowa/U.S. Military Academy) became the first-ever Division II women’s individual time trial national champion after completing the course in 31:49.39. Adelaide Tillinghast (Washington, D.C./American University) secured the silver medal, finishing 16.13 behind Hansen. Rose Long (New York, N.Y./Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai) placed third, 38.46 behind Hansen. Danita Dunlap (Bellingham, Wash./Western Washington University) was nearly a minute behind Long to place fourth and Tanelle Berard (Clive, Iowa/University of Northern Colorado) placed fifth.
