Rosskopf wins first national jersey
May 9, 2009
Fort Collins, CO – Pfeiffer University’s Male Athlete of the Year made school history this weekend at the Collegiate National Bicycle Championships/ Fort Collins Cycling Festival. At the Colorado State University hosted event Joey Rosskopf, a freshman cyclist from Decatur, Georgia, was awarded with his first national jersey for being the overall top individual racer in the country.
On Saturday morning, Rosskopf took fifth place in the downtown Fort Collins criterium. It is important to mention that as the ACCC men’s A champion he was called to the line first for every race in which he participated in, earning the best starting position for each race. His combined wins, plus the fact that road race winner from Princeton was unable to beat him in the criterium gave Rosskopf the overall Division II title and his first national jersey.
Rosskopf is Team Pfeiffer Cycling’s first national champion.
