This past weekend at Barry-Roubaix, we awarded four (4) scholarships to riders in both the 24 mile and 36 mile races. In each category we honored the top placing male and top placing female in the 11-18 age group. New for this year, we partnered with Tree Fort Bikes of Ypislanti, MI to present the awards.
36 mile Scholarships
|Cameron Buccellato||16||RBS Cycling Team||Lake Orion||MI||1:58:16||18.3|
|Emma Swartz||17||Brazen Dropouts/Machinery Row Bicycles||Madison||WI||2:10:09||16.6|
Both Emma Swartz and Cameron Buccellato were awarded scholarships of $500 each for their achievements. Cameron finished 1st in the 11-18 age grouping and 24th overall, less than 7 minutes off the overall winners time. Emma not only won her age class, she took the overall womens victory by 28 seconds over 2nd place.
24 mile Scholarships
|Caleb Swartz||14||Brazen Dropouts/Machinery Row Bicycles||Madison||WI||1:16:17||18.9|
|Danielle Krebs||13||Verdigris Village||Saint Charles||IL||1:33:27||15.4|
In the 24 mile race, Danielle Krebs and Caleb Swartz each took first (1st) place in the 11-18 age category earning them $250 scholarships. These achievements are worth noting because of both riders young age. Caleb went on to finish second (2nd) overall of all male riders only missing the podium by 5 seconds. Danielle came in 3 minutes off the podium coming in 11th overall out of all female racers in the 24 mile distance.
