Taking their love of rocky terrain in a whole new direction, Geosciences graduate students and postdocs make us proud each spring by riding (and placing) in the 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo mountain bike race. "The 24" features a 16-mile loop that teams of riders ride relay-style, non-stop, for 24 hours.
This year, winning teams included several Geosciences riders:
Male Duo: Drew Laskowski (Geosciences PhD student) and Matt Jones, 1st place
Female Duo: Alexis Ault (Geosciences postdoc) and Eszter Horanyi, 2nd place
4 Woman Team: Devon Orme (Geosciences PhD student), Kathleen Compton (Geosciences PhD student), and Alicia Hudson, 5th place
Adam Hudson (Geosciences PhD student) was on support crew duty and Department Head Pete Reiners and Geosciences Researcher Stuart Thomson attended the event.
Geosciences participants in previous years include: Ryan Porter (PhD, 2011), Willy Guenthner (PhD 2013), Dave Pearson (PhD 2012), Robinson Cecil (PhD 2009), Scott McBride (MS 2008), and Alex Strugatskiy (MS 2008)
