A recap of Spring Series BY TRENT STUTZMAN tlstutzm@indiana.edu

QUALIFICATIONS Seniority reigned supreme for men’s qualifications, as Beta Theta Pi won pole position with its four senior riders. Beta finished .297 seconds ahead of the second-place Black Key Bulls. Defending Little 500 champion Delta Tau Delta finished 13th on the day, while 11-time champion Cutters placed 10th. Kappa Kappa Gamma finished first in qualifications after placing seventh in the event last year. The sorority’s time of 2:42.54 was

nearly two seconds better than the second-place Wing It’s. Defending Little 500 champion Delta Gamma finished fourth with a time of 2:44.64. INDIVIDUAL TIME TRIALS After falling three spots short of the top ITT time in 2012, Cutters rider Kevin Depasse found redemption this year in beating teammate Timothy Nixon by .15 seconds. Her time got .36 seconds worse from last year, but Kathleen Chelminiak of Kappa Alpha Theta was able to repeat as the women’s ITT champion. She is now

the third consecutive repeat champion in the event. Teter owned the day as a trio, however, with its top three riders finishing 10th or better. MISS-N-OUT The dynamic duo of Kevin Depasse and Timothy Nixon struck again as the two Cutters riders followed up their 1-2 finish, respectively, at ITTs with another at Miss-N-Out. The other riders to make it to the finals were Beta Theta Pi’s Eric Anderson and Will Kragie, Sigma Chi’s Brian Arfmann and Sigma Nu’s Brice Brookshire. For the second straight year, the women’s Miss-N-

Out final came down to Kappa Alpha Theta’s Kathleen Chelminiak and Delta Gamma’s Kayce Doogs. Doogs got her revenge for last year’s loss and beat out Chelminiak. Teter’s Lisa Hutcheson and Emma Caughlin, Wing It’s Melissa Moeller and Kappa Delta’s Lauren Kohut rounded out the remainder of the finalists. TEAM PURSUIT While both Beta Theta Pi and Cutters improved their times from the first round to the finals, Beta proved to be more dominant. Its time of 8:49.7 was 14 seconds better and was the first

performance under nine minutes since 2005. This was Beta’s first win in Team Pursuit. But Cutters clinched the Spring Series championship and the white jersey that comes with it on race day. Teter also clinched the white jersey but did so before the finals of the women’s Team Pursuit. The team didn’t back off in the end and beat Delta Gamma by four seconds with a time of 8:20.11. Teter has now won Team Pursuit four times in a row and six overall. Had Delta Gamma won, it would have been its first victory since 2001, the only time the team has won Team Pursuit.

Despite dreary weather that plagued last year’s races, Little 500 lived up to its hype as greek teams swept both competitions for the first time since 2006. On a cold and rainy Friday night, the women’s race came down to a final-lap battle among five teams: Kappa Kappa Gamma, Wing It Cycling, Teter, Kappa Alpha Theta and Delta Gamma. After the teams rounded turn two, one behind the other, Kappa Alpha Theta’s Kathleen Chelminiak and Delta Gamma’s Kayce Doogs began to break away from the field. With Chelminiak ahead, Doogs slowly began to diminish her lead. By turn four, Doogs overtook and outsprinted Chelminiak to the Little 500 title. It was Delta Gamma’s first win since 2008. In the men’s race under windy conditions and cloudy skies, it was a crash in the final 25 laps that determined the winner. Five-time defending champion Cutters suffered a fateful crash in lap 176 that took it and competitor Black Key Bulls out of contention. Delta Tau Delta, a team that had never won a Little 500, took advantage of the situation. Senior RJ Stuart led a breakaway effort in the final 15 laps to clinch the title for the Delts in what teammate Luke Momper called “the greatest feeling I’ve ever experienced.” — Jordan Littman

Anatomy of a rider

GEAR GUIDE 1 BY ROBBY HOWARD robhowar@indiana.edu

Competing in the Little 500 requires more than just the pedals on a bicycle. Ask any rider who has taken a spill on the cinder at Bill Armstrong Stadium. Riders must purchase a range of head-to-toe gear to ensure safety in case that tire gets loose on the outside of the cinders. Gray Goat senior rider Ethan Page broke down what a rider wears on every part of his or her body for the race.

ILLUSTRATION BY CONNOR RILEY | IDS

1 HEAD: HELMET AND GOGGLES Every rider is required to wear a helmet in the race, but it is up to the rider to choose what kind. Some prefer more aerodynamic helmets. To sell a bike helmet, it must be certified for safety, meaning most helmets provide the same amount of protection. “Your helmet is probably by far your most important thing,” Page said. “I bet you pretty much every single Little Five rider has wrecked and hit their head.” On the cinder track, dust and rocks fly everywhere. Page said he once had a rock the size of his knuckle fly right at his eye during a road ride. For this reason, he said sunglasses are the second most important piece of safety equipment. If a rider’s eye gets dried out or if dust flies in, that could cause the rider to fall, causing a domino effect for everyone behind. “I think sunglasses aren’t used as much for blocking the sun as much as they’re used to keep the track out of your eyes, keep the dirt out of your eyes, Page said. “I bet you every single person, again, who’s been on the track has had crap thrown up at their eyes.”

2 TORSO: KIT Page said kit preference varies by rider. A kit, which is the jersey riders wear, is normally tight-fitting compression material that cuts down on resistance. Some riders prefer as little resistance as possible, while others don’t have to have it perfect. It is up to individuals or teams to purchase kits. Prices can range from $25 to more than $200. Some companies sponsor teams and have their logos displayed on kits. “The most important thing, I would say, is to get a halfway tight jersey, just because you’ll notice your shirt flapping around in the wind a lot, Page said. “And I know it probably doesn’t sound like a big deal, but in cycling, the less drag the better.”

3 HANDS: GLOVES While sweating around the track for a couple of hours, you don’t want your hands to fall off the handles, nor do you want your hands to be full of cinder if you do wipe out. Because of this, all Little 500 riders are required to wear gloves, with or without fingers. Page said that choice depends on the weather. “If you go down, you’re not tearing your hands up with gloves,” Page said. 4 FEET: SOCKS AND SHOES Page said socks aren’t really important, and it is more a matter of personal preference. Some prefer thinner socks because of the sweating. As for shoes, riders wear something with good grip to stay on the pedals. Cycling shoes are not required, as bikers do not clip in to the bike. Page said he wears old trail running shoes. As long as it is a low-cut shoe with solid grip, it doesn’t matter what you wear. “You want something that is going to grip the pedal really good, keep your feet from sliding off,” Page said.

5 LOWER BODY: BIKE SHORTS AND BIBS Bike shorts have extra padding inside to cut down on any discomfort that might arise due to the position of the bike’s saddle. “You also want bike shorts for sure on those,” Page said. “You’ll get a nice little bruise in your manhood areas if you don’t have a nice pad.” Page also said extremely tight bike shorts are important for exchanges because having just the smallest amount of flap could cause the rider to get stuck and wreck the exchange. Page wears a wrestlingtype uniform called a bib that has suspender-like straps over the shoulders, then comes down to the lower body to provide for a tight fit underneath bike shorts. “It keeps your shorts from moving down,” Page said.

Previous models of Schwinn Little 500 bicycles lie on the track before Delta Gamma begins its run in the finals of Team Pursuit on April 6.

One speed, one bike BY JORDAN LITTMAN littmanj@indiana.edu

It is an annual tradition that marks the start of one of the most anticipated races in all of college sports. Before the 2013 Little 500 begins Friday and Saturday and riders line up in their assigned row positions, the following words will blare from the intercom: “Riders, mount your Schwinn bicycles.” It is a saying that has stuck with the IU Student

Foundation since the first Little 500 in 1951. However, Schwinn has not always been the bike of choice. When Howdy Wilcox Jr. founded the race more than 62 years ago, one of his main priorities was to ensure everyone would be on the same playing field. To do so, he made sure each team and each rider would use the same bike. In 1951, Wilcox contracted with Schwinn, then a Chicago-based manufacturer, and for the first few years of

the Little 500’s history, Schwinn provided the bicycles. In 1956, IUSF moved away from Schwinn in favor of Roadmaster AMF bicycles until 2000. The movie “Breaking Away” that portrays the Little 500 actually included Roadmaster bikes. “It actually became a staple of ‘Gentlemen, mount your Roadmaster bicycles,’” Race Director Jordan Bailey said. “Then, stuff had happened in the bicycling industry and things started to

get consolidated.” In 2000, a company called Pacific Cycle bought Roadmaster and another smaller bike company called Mongoose. IUSF made the decision to change from its Roadmaster tradition to a Mongoose off-road bike because it would fit better with the cinder track at Bill Armstrong Stadium. News came in 2001, however, that Pacific Cycle would buy out Schwinn, and in 2002, Pacific introduced

Schwinn bikes to the public. By 2006, IUSF had decided to renew its partnership with Schwinn. “I like the tradition because that’s what they rode in the very first year,” Bailey said. “In truth, for the most part, the bikes haven’t changed much in the last 60 years. It’s the great equalizer so it really evens out the playing field.” Each year, IU calls Schwinn to produce a custom order of Little 500 bikes. The organization orders

approximately 200 bicycles per year branded with the “Little 500” name. Though it has not always been that way, the phrase, “Riders, mount your Schwinn bicycles,” now provides historical context and will be of special significance this weekend. “Just because it’s been a healthy relationship for so many years, it’d be foolish on our part to look somewhere else,” Bailey said. “It’s a great tradition to have.”

ERIC ANDERSON, BETA THETA PI

What they’re trying to prove Little 500 means much more than a bike race to veteran riders Eric Anderson, Kevin Depasse and Paul Smith.

CLAYTON MOORE | IDS

BY ROBBY HOWARD robhowar@indiana.edu

Eric Anderson had pondered the same question for weeks. Kevin Depasse couldn’t find the proper words. Paul Smith uttered the biggest superlative he could. The question was, “What does Little 500 mean to you?” “That’s probably a hard question to answer for most riders because it means so much more than a bike race,” Depasse said. Little 500 can’t be reduced to a few words for these three riders. Each trains almost 365 days a year for one day of competition. Each sheds sweat and blood for one shot at glory. For these three riders, Little 500 is much more than a bike race. It’s a way of life.

And each has made sacrifices along the way to pursue the same goal: to finish April 20 on top of the podium. These riders, all in the top six at Individual Time Trials, pace their respective teams. Anderson rides for Beta Theta Pi, Depasse for Cutters and Smith for Delta Tau Delta. The countless hours of work on the track, on the road, on the rollers, on the saddle, on the gym machines have led each one to this moment — this shot to enshrine their name on the BorgWarner Trophy. None of them have made it without facing an obstacle. Each has something to prove. * * * Seven years ago, while he sat in his sophomore year physics class at Munster

HISTORIC BLOOMINGTON

ANTIQUE MALL

“I just want to look back and know that we laid it all out there. We’re definitely not going to be content to just sit in there and watch the race unfold. We’ve put so much into this. ” Eric Anderson, Beta Theta Pi rider

High School, Anderson was attacked by the cycling bug. He had an uncle who had ridden a year for Sigma Alpha Epsilon in the early ’90s, but Anderson had never really considered riding himself. In his physics class, he sat next to a girl who was

“all excited” about Little 500 champion Alpha Tau Omega because it had rider Steve Ziemba, who graduated from Munster. The girl had a sibling in Ziemba’s grade and felt a connection to him. From that moment, Anderson started to look at Little 500 a little more seriously. “That kind of planted the seed,” Anderson said. “Once I got here, that really grew and blossomed. Now I’m here for a fifth year just to try to win this bike race.” Anderson made quick connections in the cycling community. He met thenBlack Key Bulls rider Jordan Bailey the summer before coming to Bloomington. Anderson worked with Bailey’s sister as a counselor at Camp Tecumseh. He thought he had found his niche with BKB. The

team had finished eighth in 2008, and in 2009 — his freshman year — they finished fifth. Anderson didn’t ride in the race as a freshman, but he learned and observed. “They taught me a lot of what I know about cycling and how to be a good person both on and off the bike,” Anderson said. “A lot of respect for those guys. It was a great experience.” But it was an experience he would soon leave. After coming to Bloomington, Anderson’s opinion on the greek system changed. He soon realized through his involvement with IU Dance Marathon that the greek system was something he wanted to join. In September 2009, he committed to pledging. When he pledged Beta

Theta Pi, he said it had nothing to do with cycling. Beta had qualified in 33rd position in 2009 and finished 29th. “Pretty much had one of the worst programs in all of greek life,” Anderson said. BKB understood his reasoning, and Anderson said it was a mutual split that was never ugly. He then turned his attention to implementing what he learned at BKB into the Beta program. Through working with BKB and reaching out to Beta alumni, Anderson improved the program to a fifth-place qualification — and a fifth-place finish. In 2011, Anderson was thrust into being team captain and served on the IU Riders Council. He learned about how to manage all the other responsibilities that

come with riding in the race. While Beta qualified seventh, the team finished 17th. But the next year, William Kragie joined the team, and it elevated Beta to an elite status. It won the pole in 2012. After finishing seventh last year, the team returns all four riders this year, combining for 14 years of track experience. But there was a moment Anderson considered not coming back for this race. He will finish with 215 credit hours and is finishing his fourth degree from the Kelley School of Business. Students can only graduate with three degrees. “It kind of clicked over the summer that this is something that so few people get the opportunity to do to be coming back to a team where there’s three people, some of my closest friends,

“I literally just totally committed my whole person to the team. Every ounce went to the team.” Kevin Depasse, Cutters rider

who are all doing everything they can to try to win this race,” Anderson said. “It just didn’t feel right leaving that.” The Betas are back on the pole, trying to prove they can do more than just win on qualifications day. “I just want to look back and know that we laid it all out there,” Anderson said. “We’re definitely not going to be content to just sit in there and watch the race unfold. We’ve put so much into this. “To know that we’ve put so much into this and made

so many sacrifices and have so many people out there watching us, knowing that we’re representing people literally across the country and around the world, for us to do anything but give it our all out there would be just a complete slap in the face to everybody that’s ever been a part of this program.” Anderson and Depasse are fifth-year seniors. Anderson will ride in his fourth race and Depasse his third. The two joke around with each other and enjoy spending time together — except when they’re both on the track. “There’s a monster inside that you’ve got to have satisfied,” Depasse said. “This is the only avenue for that for the Cutters.” Depasse knew he would stick around for a fifth year since his sophomore year.

AMELIA CHONG | IDS

He has a competitive edge that still needs to be satisfied after riding in only two races. He still has work to do. “It’s a bike race. I want to win,” Depasse said. “We want to win. In my head, it’s the only reason I’m here is to do this. Once it’s over, it’s over.” Depasse watched two Little 500 races from the bleachers before he decided to get involved. He had been interested in biking after running cross country and track while at Terre Haute North High School, but never took it too seriously. Not until the summer after his sophomore year at IU. “The second year, it’s like, ‘OK, I want to do this,’” Depasse said. “I saw the Cutters win twice. I wanted to go to the Cutters and ride for them and win.

“I literally just totally committed my whole person to the team. Every ounce went to the team.” Depasse fit in well with the Cutters from the start. He met their basic requirements. That meant working harder than ever. “All you have to do is show up and stick around for the workouts,” he said. “That weeds out most people. The only thing it takes to be a Cutter is to show up and commit to something bigger than yourself and not be a dick. “We’re normal guys. We’re no different than everyone else out there. We just have a different mindset.” That mindset is a mentality of one. Depasse said it is the mantra of the team. It’s not just a representation of the team’s goal — to win.

It is a representation of its values. He said former rider Erik Hamilton, who went to Terre Haute North and encouraged Depasse to join the team, got the number “1” tattooed on the underside of his arm below his wrist. His wife did the same. “It signifies the sense of unity we carry within ourselves,” Hamilton said. “If you’re a Cutter, you’re a Cutter for life. You’re working for this thing that’s bigger than yourself that you can’t explain and don’t care to define because it’s impossible. “You can’t express into words what being a Cutter is because it’s just too much. That’s what the team is to me.” Depasse raced in his first year in 2011, his junior year. SEE PROVING, PAGE 11

START YOUR ENGINES...PEDALS BY RACHAEL STUART | rmstuart@indiana.edu

IU’s famed collegiate bike race carries a culture and excitement of its own, but its inspiration is easily traced to another Indiana competition of laps and wheels — the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race. The almost seven-hour car race, a yearly spectacle since 1911, became the framework for the University’s own yearly battle of patience and determination.

YEAR-LONG SPORT Little 500 riders start training well before spring excitement begins BY JORDAN LITTMAN littmanj@indiana.edu

Friday and Saturday, the spotlight will be on 66 teams as they race for the Little 500 men’s and women’s titles. Months of training will come down to a span of more than one hour for the women and two hours for the men. One mistake can mean failure, and one right move can prove to be the championship decision. But for teams to be in this position, it takes more than just an effective race strategy. Riders train from the start of the school year to prepare for the Little 500 and the potential successes that come with it. “Fall is a good time to build the team, to bond with the rookies and build one’s base,” sophomore Alpha Epsilon Pi rider Sam Erlanger said. “We also do the Fall Se-

“The base becomes important later during the race because after doing a few 10 to 20 lap sets, you need that base to keep you going. There is no time for base in the spring because all the time is spent on leg speed, power in the legs and track time.” Sam Erlanger, Alpha Epsilon Pi rider

ries to get some experience on the track.” During the fall season, riders typically train four to five hours each weekend. Mileage-wise, riders bike 30 to 40 miles on weekdays and anywhere from 45 to 100 miles each weekend. Though bikers ride long distances in the fall, they usually remain at slow speeds, typically around 15 miles per hour. This builds endurance, a key factor come race day. The biggest goal of fall training is to build a cardiovascular base for more intense workouts as the spring

nears. “The base becomes important later during the race because after doing a few 10 to 20 lap sets, you need that base to keep you going,” Erlanger said. “There is no time for base in the spring because all the time is spent on leg speed, power in the legs and track time.” Once a cardiovascular foundation is built, riders can improve on speed. Throughout the winter, teams do more intense workouts indoors, typically through interval training. When it’s feasible, teams will go on outdoor rides,

but the main goal is to be as well-rounded as possible come race day. By the time March and April roll around, bikers hope to be peaking, when their cardiovascular base and additional training combine to produce ideal physical conditions. When riders take to the track, unforeseen circumstances will alter teams’ races — it is just a facet of the annual competition that makes it so unpredictable. However, each team’s individual training will put it into contention for the BorgWarner Trophy. “For contending in the race, learning how to ride in the pack and how to deal with surges all depends on your training,” Erlanger said. “There’s so much physical work to be put in. Without it, we would not be in contention at all.”

» PROVING CONTINUED FROM PAGE 7 That year was Eric Young’s senior year. Young won ITTs three years in a row and led the Cutters to four straight Little 500 victories during his four years at IU. In 2011, Depasse learned as much as he could from Young. He translated that to a fourth-place finish at ITTs and helped bring the Cutters a 12th championship. The next year, without Young, Depasse crashed trying to make a late move in the race around turn four. The team saw its five straight championships come to a close as it finished fourth. “It was tough,” he said. “You just prepare for as many possible situations as you can and just apply what you know at every moment. We did that, and you’ve got to be happy with that. It sucked to lose, but we did everything we could.” Depasse has done everything he can in the Spring STEPH AARONSON | IDS Series this year to prepare the Cutters for another run A Delta Tau Delta rider races during Miss-N-Out on April 6 at Bill Armstrong Stadium. at the trophy.

HOPE FOR THE BEST,

PREPARE FOR THE WORST BY ROBBY HOWARD robhowar@indiana.edu

Jon Steele must always be ready to go on race day, but he prays he never has to do anything. As bike mechanic for Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Steele spends half his time in the pit and half his time in the infield, holding the backup bike in case of a crash. “If they go down, even worse than a crash is just not having a bike ready,” Steele said. “Hopefully, it’s a position that never has to be used, but if it needs to be, it needs to be fast.” Steele’s job is to make sure everything goes smoothly for the team leading up to and on race day. He works on the bikes during nights before the race to make sure they pass inspection so the team doesn’t get a penalty. He carries all team bikes and training equipment to the track for race day. And, of course, if a crash happens, he has to have the backup bike ready, then be prepared to go to work on the battered one. “It’s exciting to be able to help,” Steele said. “They put in, all the riders, not just for our team but all across the race, they all put in a lot of effort and a lot of work into it. It’s fun to be able to go out there and help them with whatever they need.” Steele joined the team as the mechanic last year. He had no training in bicycles and knew nothing about them, but he was eager to learn and fill a spot on the team. “I’m not athletic enough or

fast enough to ride by any means,” Steele said. “So I said, ‘Do you need any help with mechanics?’ One of the alumni sat me down for four or five hours, and we took the bikes apart, and he made me put them back together.” Steele said he has always been good with his hands. After repeating the process of tearing down the bike and putting it back together, he said he now feels comfortable with the position. During last year’s race, Steele got called to action immediately. SAE went down on lap seven in a big crash. It was time to go to work. “I wasn’t panicking, but it’s nerve-wracking,” Steele said. “You just have the adrenaline because it’s like, ‘Oh, crap. One of your riders just went down.’ You want to make sure he’s OK, but you want to make sure the bike’s OK. For the betterment of the team, unfortunately, you have to make sure everything is going well.” Steele said he’s now more able to recognize what’s happening on the track. He helps call things out to the team, like when other teams are doing a burnout or when a rider is getting tired. He said it’s always good to have an extra pair of eyes on the track. As for race day, Steele hopes he doesn’t have to do anything on the track once the green flag is waved. “Hopefully, there’s no crashes that I’ll actually have to fix,” Steele said. “But you have to be prepared for the worst.”

FROM SIDESHOW TO COMPETITION THE LITTLE 500 WOMEN’S RACE B

efore they could race on single-speed Schwinns, women competed in the Mini 500, riding AMF Roadmaster tricycles around a loop inside Assembly Hall. In 1987, Kappa Alpha Theta assembled a team to qualify for the exclusively male Little 500. Another all-woman team had tried in 1981, but “man-to-man” exchanges became their downfall. They made the board at 3:07.74, but other teams’ faster times forced them out to finish 34th. Thanks to collaboration by the IU Student Foundation and the IU Office of Women’s Affairs, the inaugural women’s race came to fruition in 1988. That same Saturday, the Mini 500 trikes were offered to men, too. Nine men’s teams lined up against a staggering 54 women’s teams, including Theta. In 2006, almost 20 years later, the women’s Little 500 field was full. It hit capacity again this year, and with no clear-cut winner, it might be the most competitive ever. The race has come a long way since 1987. It’s competitive. It’s serious. It’s a bike race. 1988

Cinder track makes for messy wounds BY JOE POPELY jpopely@indiana.edu

The track at Bill Armstrong Stadium is the only cycling track in the country made of cinder, and it’s been that way since it was first built. “Cinders are pretty nasty,” senior Delta Upsilon rider Aaron Starkston said. “I’ve had my fair share of cinder tattoos.” Nonetheless, Starkston said cinder is the safest material to crash on because it is the softest. He broke his elbow March 9 after falling off his bike during a training ride on open road. Miss-N-Out on April 6

was Starkston’s first day back on the track since the injury. Though he had less than a week to get re-acclimated to the cinder, his experience as a three-year rider has him prepared for the unusual surface. Helen Han, a senior rider for Ride On, has also had her share of “cinder tattoos.” “You really can’t prepare for the track,” Han said. “We do lots of work on the rollers. Same with road rides. But there’s nothing quite like it. It’s a really unique feel.” Unlike many asphalt cycling tracks, the track at Bill Armstrong is relatively flat around the turns. At the same

time, cinder offers less traction than traditionally paved surfaces. The result: Riders will crash if they take turns too fast. “On the corners your back wheel slides out — fishtailing — and you have to keep your body relaxed,” said senior Brad Koszuta, who has coached Ride On for one year and is a senior rider for Hillel. “It takes some getting used to. There’s no substitute for experience.” IU relies heavily on coalburning power plants for its electricity. Cinder is made from the remnants of burnt coal, so it was a logical substance to use for the track at

Bill Armstrong. Wally Hansford is a crew leader at the IU Physical Plant and has helped maintain the cinder track since 1981. He said the track was originally intended for running only. Little 500 came later, and the rest is history. “Because the first track they rode on was cinders, which was a common substance for people to use, tradition says that it has to be a cinder track,” Hansford said. “It’s all about tradition.” Hansford and his team maintain the track every day. The process includes packing the cinder down with a

steamroller, watering the track and using a blower to remove loose pieces off the top, in that order. Han, like most riders, said she prefers a moist track. Otherwise, loose pieces of cinder fly around as if part of a dust storm. Hansford makes sure that doesn’t happen and said watering the track is the most important part of daily track maintenance. “The moisture is the most important thing — we put water on it every day,” he said. “It’s the only substance that holds it together like glue. When it dries out, it would be like

riding on sand. If it’s cloudy and moist on race day, I’m the happiest guy out there.” Riders can be confident Hansford will get it right, as he has been in charge of maintaining the track for the last 32 years. This race will be his last and the last time he will be challenged to nail the exact science of cinder. “The kids —they have to adjust to what they’re riding on,” he said. “It is different. There just isn’t another bicycle track made of cinders anywhere. “So that makes it unique but challenging for them, me, everyone.”

Delta Tau Delta riders train inside the bike training room in the basement of their house. The Delts have a bike rack for up to 20 bikes and six sets of rollers at their disposal.

ROOM TO GROW BY ROBBY HOWARD robhowar@indiana.edu

When Paul Smith decided to transfer teams and leave Wright Cycling for Delta Tau Delta, he didn’t realize his training room would go from a random basement to one of the best facilities on campus.

“It’s probably one of the nicest, if not the nicest, bike rooms on campus,� Smith said. The Delts’ bike room has six sets of rollers with rails for easier access to the bikes. It has eight full lockers. It has a bike rack for up to 20 bikes. It has an area that looks like a bicycle garage. It has a 50-inch

television. “Everything is nice,� Smith said. “It’s just a lot of added benefits.� The room is designed for winter work, when the team spends lots of time indoors on the rollers. Smith said the rollers are some of the best on the market right now.

“It makes it feel a lot more like you’re riding on the road than just normal rollers, which have no resistance,� he said. The rails also have power outlets for riders to charge their phones or even plug in their personal fans located behind the rollers. If it gets too smelly and

sweaty in the room, an air conditioning system ionizes the air. While training, the riders watch race tape or a cycling event. A stack of three DVD cases of past race broadcasts stands on the table in front of the flatscreen. But sometimes, race tape

gets old. “We’ll come in here and watch movies in the winter,� Smith said. “Anything is better than staring at a blank wall and a clock. Time goes by so slow when you’re on those rollers.� SEE ROOM, PAGE 17

THE CURSE OF TURN 3: FACT OR MYTH? BY TRENT STUTZMAN tlstutzm@indiana.edu

Late in the 2012 men’s Little 500 race, Cutters rider Kevin Depasse attempted to bypass a Beta Theta Pi rider during turn three. Depasse slipped during the process, creating a huge crash and affecting multiple teams’ shots at the title. The third turn of the race has long been characterized as the most dangerous. While sophomore Jeff Jones of Sigma Nu agreed with this assessment, junior Teter rider Mackenzie Lloyd had different thoughts.

anticipation of turn four and the start and finish line coming up right after that, so people kind of get antsy. Also, people are making exchanges coming through that. People are wanting to get out and get their exchange, so it’s kind of a more anticipated turn.

IDS How do you avoid crashes in turn three? JONES Definitely just be

predictable. That’s the main thing. That’s what they preach to all new riders. I guess that’s just the most important thing to try to do on the track. IDS How much do you practice on turn three? JONES We focus on it quite a bit, I’d say. Our captain always tells us, “just stay predictable, especially in turn three.” They kind of

emphasize turn three a lot. IDS Are there any rules that could be implemented to help? JONES I don’t think there’s anything off the top of my head. I mean it is a race, and people are gonna be aggressive. So, implementing rules and stuff like that would probably just take away from the race and what it’s meant to be.

Mackenzie Lloyd, junior, Teter IDS Is turn three the most dangerous? LLOYD I would disagree with that. I think turn four would probably be the most dangerous one. I know for us, we’re always in turn one. This is our first year we’ve done turn three, so it’s definitely going to give us a different edge as to where we burn out on the track and how we approach those tactics. IDS What makes turn four so dangerous? LLOYD If you’re directly in turn four, you have to burn out directly after the turn, get into your pit. So for us, we have the straightaway before our pit. We have a whole straightaway to burn out, so it’s kind of like an awkward going-around-theturn, slows you down. By the time you’re in your pit, most likely the pack has already passed you. IDS How do you avoid crashes in turn four? LLOYD We always ride in what we call “Teter position.” We never stay inside toward the gutter. We’re always on the outside, either in second position or third position. If a crash does happen, we can easily avoid it by moving toward the outside. If you’re on the inside in the gutter, and if someone crosses in front of you, you’re going to go down unless you have supersonic senses or something. Our coach is really good about, during the race, telling us how our position is and if we need to change it. IDS How much do you practice on turn four? LLOYD We go every day. We try different burnouts. We try to burnout different areas of the track. We’re used to doing turn one. Now, we have to adjust how we race and where we come out of the pack to exchange riders.

Directly under the TV sits a large digital clock with red numerals. The riders use this to set timers during training. It’s their biggest enemy in the room. “The clock is probably the worst thing in the world,” Smith said. “I think that’s the number one hated thing in this room, especially when you have it on a countdown timer. It’s like, ‘How much time do I still have left?’” In the entertainment center in front of the TV sits multiple silver trophies from the last five years and last year’s newest addition — the gold trophy given to the Little 500 race winners. “We’ve got the big gold trophy there for motivation while we’re on rollers,” Smith said. Next to the trophies is a framed copy of the front page of the Indiana Daily Student from last year’s race, with a picture of RJ Stuart raising his arms after winning the race. While it might sound like this room has it all, Smith said there’s more to be done. He said the team is working on building a trophy and memorabilia collection for its Little 500 gear that will go in the team’s formal room. The house’s commitment to the bike program has encouraged the riders to work even harder, Smith said. “With this I feel like people actually want to come and train,” he said. “We don’t have to force them as much.”

Miss-N-Out winner Kayce Doogs of Delta Gamma competes with Kathleen Chelminiak of Kappa Alpha Theta and Teter rider Lisa Hutcheson in their last lap around the track during Miss-N-Out on April 16 at the Bill Armstrong Stadium.

Best is yet to come Women’s Little 500 field looks to be most competitive in its 26-year history BY CONNOR KILLOREN ckillore@indiana.edu

The most memorable running of the women’s Little 500 might not have occurred yet. In the 24 years since the inaugural race, perhaps no field has been as competitive as the one fans will see take to the track at Bill Armstrong Stadium on Friday. “I think that’s a pretty fair assessment,” Little 500 Race Coordinator Jordan Bailey said of the assertion. “I haven’t been around for all 26 of the races, but this year is certainly the most competitive in recent history.” The top five finishing teams of last year’s race—

Delta Gamma, Kappa Alpha Theta, Teter, Wing It Cycling and Kappa Kappa Gamma— are legitimate contenders for this year’s title, making the 2013 edition one of the deepest in memory. “On the women’s side, five or, potentially, six teams all have a legitimate shot at winning,” Bailey said. “Oftentimes, you have a handful of standout teams that have a legitimate shot at winning, but with this year in particular, the field is just wide open.” Rachel Metherd, a Kappa Alpha Theta rider, also noted this year’s incredibly competitive field, and openly admitted she and her team’s

willingness to work with other teams during the heat of the race. “I guess what excites us most is that there’s always people you can work with in a situation if you need to,” she said. “Obviously, you want to win. Being a competitive team ourselves, we know the other people on the other good teams. I’m sure they’re willing to work with us because we’re more than willing to work with them to reach our end goal.” It’s a rare mentality that few teams would adopt, and one that Metherd believes remains consistent on an annual basis. “The competition doesn’t

really change our mentality from year to year,” she said. “Yeah, there are a lot of returning riders from good teams, but I don’t think we look at the race any differently this year as opposed to last year. “I think because we’ve been riding with the same riders for at least one or two years we know their strengths and weaknesses,” Metherd said. Teter senior rider Lisa Hutcheson noted not only the quality of the riders, but also the extraordinary depth of that quality. “It’s a totally different experience with everybody being experienced rac-

ers,” she said. “There are 20 girls out there who are experienced riders and who

are really good at racing, so you really have to strategize more and really try to counteract everyone’s move instead of just sticking with your plan. “That’s probably the most challenging part of the race,” Hutcheson said. While outright team speed is a crucial element in a victorious formula, a mastery of all racing elements is necessary for the claiming of a championship. Bailey said each of this year’s contending teams possesses those traits. “Each of these contending teams is capable of winning in a variety of ways,” he said. “It’ll make for an

exciting race on Friday.” And in a rather peculiar turn of events, the women’s race can and should be considered more exciting and entertaining than that of the men’s race, per Bailey. “I will even go so far as to say that if you compare the women’s race to the men’s race, it has the potential to be more exciting,” he said. “On the men’s side, it’s a little more clear cut who the favorites are, and you have your usual suspects.” That distinction given to the women’s field as was an honor for Hutcheson, whose feelings on the matter were nearly identical. “I would say the women’s

field is on a more even playing field this year than the men’s race,” she said. “It’s going to be a more quality race this year than ever, and that’s a huge thing. Basically everyone who is going to be on the last lap is going to be a graduating senior, which is a huge thing. It’s very rare to see the top 10 riders from one race be seniors. “There are really experienced riders, more so than the men’s side because it will be a better match-up and more competitive,” Hutcheson said. For Metherd and Kappa Alpha Theta, the boast of the women’s field the premier race this spring has delivered

satisfying feelings. She even mentioned last year’s women’s race being, perhaps, more enticing than the men’s. “It makes me feel really good,” Metherd said. “It was an exciting race last year. I think anyone who was there wouldn’t argue with me on that one. It’s cool that the girls’ side of a sport is more exciting. “It’s a shorter race, so spectators won’t really lose their attention span,” Metherd said. Bailey echoed Metherd’s sentiments on the dynamics of the women’s race, which consists of just 100 laps, compared to 200 for the men.

“Again, just the nature of the race being only 100 laps, that in and of itself makes the event more exciting because you have such a narrow margin to make mistakes,” Bailey said. “If you make a mistake, it’s going to be very difficult to be there at the end.” Bailey compounded that belief in a historical context and cited the absence of an annual contender as reason enough to truly appreciate the rapid improvement of the women’s field. “It’s tough to be competitive in the women’s field today because there are so many riders who take it so seriously,” he said. “I think a

perfect example of that is that the Collins women’s team did not qualify for the event this year. One year ago, the Collins women placed eighth in the race with a time of 1:13.20. While the women’s Little 500 is simply an intramural cycling race, its once latent equality has finally manifested. That it is no longer seen as inferior to the men’s race speaks volumes of the progression and budding notoriety of women’s sports on a universal scale. “I think it displays kind of a culture shift,” Bailey said. “Women’s sports have come a long way in recent history.”

JERSEY COLORS

Each year, three jersey colors are designated. The white jersey goes to the winner of cumulative Spring Series event points, yellow is worn by last years’ winners and green is worn by the pole winners.

COLOR CODES THE RACE The women’s race is 100 laps, which is equivalent to 25 miles, while the men’s race is 200 laps, or roughly 50 miles. Both races are on the quartermile cinder track at Bill Armstrong Stadium. Entrants are given one-speed Schwinn bicycles. Teams are made up of as many as four riders. The riders treat the race much like a running relay. When a rider is tired, they exchange the bicycle with a teammate. Any full-time IU undergraduate can ride in the Little 500.

PITS Each team will be assigned a pit along the outside of the track according to its qualification position. These pits are approximately 16 feet wide and 6 feet deep. All exchanges and bicycle repairs must be made within these boundaries. An exception is when adjacent teams are exchanging simultaneously; one team may step beyond the restraining line to complete its exchange. Each team is allowed to have a pit crew not exceeding two persons — one in the pit and one on the infield with a bicycle.

THE LINEUP The order of the starting lineup will be determined by the qualification times. The teams will be grouped into rows of three, starting with the No. 1 pole position team on the inside of the track. All No. 1 riders will be mounted and ready five minutes before the pace lap, after which time no crew member will be allowed on the inside of the track.

PENALTIES Teams guilty of violating these rules shall be penalized no more than 20 seconds. This time will be spent in the penalty box located near the starting line. A black flag given to the team shall indicate that a penalty has been imposed. Penalties include: Impeding another team, including riders and pit crew: 10 to 20 seconds Illegal exchange from bicycle A to bicycle B: two seconds Using more than three pits for an exchange: two seconds Unsportsmanlike conduct, depending on severity: five to 20 seconds

CHANGING RIDERS Teams will be allowed to change riders as often as they wish, but they must change a minimum of 10 times in the men’s race and five times in the women’s race. Each bike exchange must begin in front of the pit of the team concerned, and it must be completed by the time the rider taking over has reached the far limits of the next pit on the right. Should the incoming rider fail to start the exchange in front of the correct pit, he or she must continue around for one more lap. If the rider backs up, the team will be subject to penalty. The outgoing rider may use the preceding pit to run and gain momentum for the exchange, but the actual exchange of the bike must take place in the correct pit area.
