Saris to Provide 12 CycleOps Fluid 2 Trainers

Patrick Walters, director of new business ventures at Saris Cycling Group, confirmed yesterday that the company will provide the Red Hawks cycling team with 12 CycleOps Fluid 2 trainers. This is a huge boost to our young program from a world-class company. Saris' commitment to the program is an excellent validation of our efforts, and their trainers will allow our team to get a jump on training this winter. When students return in January, we'll begin regular group spin sessions to get them on track for spring and summer riding and racing.

Patrick and I also discussed various scenarios in which our students may be able to incorporate their academic disciplines with their passion for cycling. We're hopeful that this new partnership will offer students engrossing research opportunities in their fields of study that will mutually benefit their educations and Saris. This is an exciting proposition as these are precisely the type of real world laboratory situations that Ripon College promotes.
