Bailey comes back to take third at VI

BRISTOL, Va. – On a very chilly morning in Bristol, the King University cycling turned in another solid cyclocross day at Virginia Intermont. Drew Bailey led King as he fought his way back through the field to take third place.

Just as he did yesterday, Bailey had an adventurous day. He crashed on the first lap, which dropped him back in the pack to 11th place. However, Bailey never gave up and fought his way all the way back to third place. The freshman had his sights on the second place rider, but he ran out of time in his attempt to finish in the top two.

Reuben Dupre also turned in a very solid finish for the men and on the women's side, Kaysee Armstrong, Jennifer Caicedo and Megan Rogers finished in the 3-5 slots. Armstrong jumped out and had the early lead, but she got a flat tire and was never able to recover.

King will be in action again on December 7-8 at the Southeast Collegiate Cycling Conference Championships Mars Hill, N.C.
