Happy New Year

Greetings Friends, family, sponsors and supporters of the F&M Cycling Team,

Happy New Years! On behalf of the team, I would like to wish all of you the best in the coming year. This year stands to be a big one for F&M Cycling. With almost the entire team returning (Congrats to Stephen Thomasch '10 for graduating and moving on to Georgetown Law) we are expecting big things from the team this spring. We intend to build on our first appearance at the National Championships last spring and turn our momentum into results at the highest levels of collegiate racing. We hope that all of you will follow our progress over the course of the year and continue to support us in our efforts to represent F&M with pride.

You can follow us on our blog, Facebook and twitter at these addresses.
