Farwell from ACCC Director Kevin Long
WASHINGTON, DC — To everyone who competed at the USA Cycling Collegiate Road National Championships, I wanted to say that just seeing your names in the results gave me a thrill and made me proud to have been your conference director! I hope you all had a great time and have memories from there that you will treasure forever!
Of course I have to give a shout out to Duke for repeating as D2 TTT champions (WOW!) and to Phillip Short from UNC-G – a team of one and he finished in the top 25! Having been your conference director for nearly 5-years has been one of the most rewarding times I have had, and I want to thank all of you for that.
I also want to take a moment to thank everyone for their support and friendship over the years; due to increasing work commitments I have been unable to devote the time needed to the conference, and it has been obvious in my performance. With my increasing travel requirements and responsibilities, my contributions to the conference will only decline.
I have spoken with Jeffrey Hansen (USA Cycling) about this, and combined with the different direction the conference wants to go, I am resigning as Conference Director, effective immediately. Brian Adamchuk will take over in the interim, and I expect wonderful things from him as his passion for cycling far exceeds mine, and I hope that you all will treat him as well as you have me.
