USAFA Triathlon Team Trailer
The USAFA Triathlon Team has almost 50 members and on average 20-25 cadets participate in several competitions during the year; including the Mountain West Conference Championships at Lake Havasu City, AZ, and the Collegiate National Championships (to be held in Tuscaloosa, AL, in 2018). Triathlon and road bikes are very high tech, somewhat fragile, and rather expensive. Currently, when the USAFA Triathlon Team travels to competitions, they must borrow bike boxes from the USAFA Cycling Team, break down their bikes and fly to their competitions. If they use government-owned vehicles (GOVs) to travel, they load their bikes in cargo vans and/or open bed platform trucks and drive to their race. Many other collegiate triathlon clubs, including University of Colorado-Boulder, CSU and USMA – West Point all have dedicated, enclosed trailers custom outfitted to store and transport their team bikes. The goal of this project is to raise monies through the USAFA Endowment so the team may purchase a new enclosed custom outfitted trailer for the USAFA Triathlon Team.
