Mars Hill College is pleased to announce the following additions to the cycling team starting this fall:
Chad Capobianco comes from Bogart, GA, where he is a senior at North Oconee High School. Chad has a strong cross country running background and has recently found a passion for cycling, producing some top results in only his first year of racing. Chad has all around ability but especially looks forward to when the road turns up.
Corey Davis is a senior at Tunstall High School in Danville, VA. Corey grew up racing motocross and honing his technical bike-handling skills. Then Corey decided to swap the gas engine for one fueled by glycogen and oxygen. Look for Corey to have in immediate impact during mountain bike season next fall. He’ll also bring his talents to the cyclocross and road teams.
Laura Rice is from Hendersonville, NC, where she was introduced to cyclocross racing at the UCI NC Grand Prix, where she was working. Laura will initially join the team’s mountain bike squad but is excited about exploring other disciplines, especially cyclocross. Laura transfers from Blue Ridge Community College; she will study Parks and Recreation Management at Mars Hill.
Barry Wilcox hails from Olney, MD, and will join the team as a freshman. Barry has been a mainstay on the Mid-Atlantic road racing circuit for the last few years and is fortunate to belong to a family of bike racers. Most of his eight siblings race, as does his father. Barry has won the Highway to Heaven Uphill Time Trial the last three consecutive years but has proven himself a cagey crit and road racer too.
Stay tuned, as Mars Hill Cycling announces more roster additions in the near future.
