    College mtb team looking for talented H.S. racers

    The Ripon College Red Hawks cycling team won the 2009 Midwest Collegiate Cycling Conference Div. 2 Mountain Bike Team Championship and competed at the USA Cycling Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals. We're a strong young team looking to grow. We can't offer athletic scholarships, but we do offer academic and merit awards for intelligent young women and men looking for a top-notch education.

    Find out more at http://www.ripon.edu/cycling and contact coach Ric Damm for more information.

    Are you saying your stupid? If you read further, you'd would have realized Ripon does offer many academic and merit scholarships. We don't pay for athletes. We pay for student-athletes.

    Fixed.

    Did you get one of the academic scholarships? I'm sorry, I'm being harsh.

    This is why I dont race for my college team, which is in the MWCC. The persona of the college cycling screams arrogant elitist from every opening.

    EVERY college offers academic scholarships. Few do so for cycling. Ergo, everybody go to Canada.

    I'm not sure why you guys are taking this so hard.

    It's a pretty straightforward offer. Yes or no on the terms and out.
