Tornado take third in relay at Cyclocross Nationals

BOULDER, Colo. – Four members of the King University cycling team qualified for the Cyclocross National Championships which opened with a relay race on Friday in Boulder, Colorado. The Tornado turned in a third place finish among Division II teams, and placed seventh overall.

King's Drew Bailey got the team off to a solid start before Kaysee Armstrong started to pass riders to move up in the field. Bailey then improved on his first lap before Armstrong carried the team to a third place finish in Division II.

The women's cyclocross championship is slated to take place tomorrow. Both Armstrong and Megan Rogers will both compete for the Tornado. The race is slated to start at 1:00 p.m. ET. The men's race is scheduled for Sunday.
