Marian University Cycling Coach Dean Peterson leads by example: brings home a national title.
Posted by Julie Adams
Marian University Head Cycling Coach and Indy Cycloplex Executive Director Dean Peterson has directed the Marian University Knights Cycling Team to many national championships, and last week he traveled to compete in the USA Cycling Masters’ National Championships in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he captured a title of his own.
Coach Peterson leads by example, especially in competition against the best masters cyclists in the country. Peterson was a member of the national champion team in the 45+ Team Pursuit, along with Major Taylor Velodrome regular Curtis Tolson and nationally recognized riders Chris Carlson and Kenneth Williams. Peterson and his teammates topped the podium and set a new national record of 4:36:8.
Peterson also won fifth place in the 3K Individual Pursuit, turning in a personal best time of 3:38.8.
Congratulations to Coach Dean Peterson!
