Here are more or less complete results for nationals.  

MIT hosted the National Collegiate Cycling Championships May 22 and 23.
The 250 cyclists from across the country came to Cambridge to compete
in three events under ideal weather conditions for the coveted
"Stars and Stripes" national championships jerseys.  The riders, representing
32 teams and 10 conferences, are the finalists from the conference
qualification competitions which began began in February for those fortunate
enough to live in warm climates.  

Saturday's road race event was held on a hilly 7.2 mile circuit in
Arlington, Belmont and Lexington.  Each lap concluded with 3 short,
but very steep hills just before the finish line.   Aggressive racing and
an early crash took several riders
out of the race on the first lap.  With the University of Colorado
working hard to force the pace on the climbs, the size of the
field slowely decreased over the next few laps.  The critical
move came on the fifth lap when a group of 7 riders
broke away from the rest of the field.  The move forced the field to split
into three groups as riders tried to catch the group(s) in front of them.
On the last lap, the front group contained 10 racers as they began jockeying
for position for the final uphill sprint to the finish.  Carlson began her
sprint first and used her power to take third behind Janell Parks of the
University of New Mexico and Sunne Pollart of the University of Colorado.

In the 72 mile mens race, early breakaway attempts kept the 140 riders
on their toes with some of the riders being dropped by the fast tempo.
On the third lap, a breakaway led by Jeff Winkler of University of Califonia
at San Diego quickly established a 40 second lead.  On the fifth lap, Winkler
dropped his breakaway companions and quickly built his lead over the field to
3 minutes despite numerous attempts by riders in the field close the gap.
Winkler showed that his 7 minute margin of victory in the West Coast Collegiate
Championships was no fluke by cruising to a 3 minute victory and a national
championship jersey.  Tylor Hamilton, a resident of Marblehead, Massachusetts
riding for the University of Colorado attacked with 2 laps to go in the race
and held on to claim second.  He was followed by a large bunch containing most
of the 45 other riders left in the race

After a short night's rest, the riders were up early on Sunday morning for a
team time trial which followed a difficult 15 mile course through Concord,
Carlisle and Bedford.   Stanford dominated the women's event and thus finished
the season with an undefeated record in team trial trial events.  The
University of California at Davis led the rest of the teams in taking second,
1 minute and 12 seconds behind Stanford.  Davis was followed closely by
Caly Poly/San Luis Obispo, the University of Colorado, and MIT.  This 5th place
by the MIT women's team was it's best placing ever in the national championships.
In the men's event, the University of California at Santa Barbara continued
it's season long *** of this event but was followed closely by the
University of Colorado.   MIT put together their best team race of the season
taking 10th, one second behind Cal Poly/San Luis Obispo and one second in
front of the University of California at San Diego.

Sunday afternoon's criterium race held in Harvard Square was the final event
of the championships.  Thousands of spectators lined the 1 kilometer course to
watch the women's 30 mile race and the men's 40 mile race.  Both races saw
fast paced action as riders continually attempted to break away from the
pack and claim points (called premes) given to the race leader at the end of
specified laps.  Both races were marred by crashes.  This seams to be a
trademark of collegiate nationals, though last year wasn't so bad.  The
course perhaps should have been more challenging to string out the field

(a bit of bragging about our star rider)
The newly crowned Dr. Kjirste Carlson (she defended her thesis on Friday, the
day before the championships started) used her criterium performance to
solidify her position and finish 3rd overall in the women's individual
competition while Stroock's criterium performance moved him to 12th overall in
the men's individual competition.  Carlson's performance caps an outstanding
collegiate cycling career that includes 2 Eastern Collegiate Conference individual
championships and many victories throughout the last three seasons.

The women's individual title went to Janelle Parks while Sunne Pollart took
second.  Tylor Hamilton used a victory in the criterium to overtake Jeff
Winkler and capture the men's individual title.  The performances of Hamilton
and Pollart led the University of Colorado to it's 4th national team title,
followed by the University of California at Davis in second and the University
of California at Santa Barbara in third.

The combined efforts of the MIT Cycling Team, Breakaway Promotions who produced
the event, and the over 200 members of the MIT community who volunteered to
help with crowd control, transportation, and course setup led to what Stanford
coach Art Walker said was the best national championship event that he has ever
