The Rams Cycling Team at Colorado State University has announced that it has hired Andy Clark as directeur sportif for the team. Clarke will work closely with the team and the Friends of Rams Cycling (alumni booster) to further develop the program, making Colorado State University a destination school for cyclists.
A CSU alumnus himself Clarke grew up in Colorado Springs where he raced on the track before attending CSU in 1991 and joining its cycling team. However, in his sophomore year the temptation to race in Belgium was too great and he went to school part time and raced full time. He spent three years racing in Europe followed by seven on the US domestic circuit pro teams including Colorado Cyclist, Tokyo Jo's, and most recently Team Rio Grand from Fort Collins. He returned to CSU, completing his B.A. in History in 1998.
