Tornado take nine wins at Georgia Tech race

CONYERS, Ga. – The King University cycling team had a week off from the collegiate mountain biking schedule a week ago, and the Tornado were itching to get back on their bicycles this weekend. King brought three riders to Georgia Tech for this weekend's race, and came home with nine victories and one second place finish in 10 attempts.

Kaysee Armstrong started her stellar weekend by winning the women's category A time trial on Saturday, and followed it with another win in the women's A short track race. She then earned her third win of the day facing a stacked field of riders in the slalom race on Saturday evening. Armstrong capped her undefeated weekend by winning the women's A cross country race on Sunday morning.

Jennifer Caicedo was nearly as impressive racing in women's category B. She opened her weekend with a pair of wins on Saturday in the time trial and the short track, before ended the weekend with a win in Sunday's cross country race. Cory Rimmer rounded out the Tornado squad as he took wins in the men's category A short track, and cross country races. He started the weekend with a second place finish in Saturday's time trial.

King will be in action again on Saturday and Sunday at the Lees-McRae College Race in Banner Elk, N.C.
