Pair heading to nationals
Two area cyclists will be heading to the USA Cycling Track Nationals in Colorado Springs, Colo., this week.
David Novak, of Tunkhannock, and Luke Lukas, of Courtdale, will compete in the event for Lindsey Wilson College Thursday through Saturday.
Novak, a junior, posted two wins earlier this month at the MidWest Collegiate Cycling Regional Championship in Indianapolis. His first win came in the scratch race, a race where the first rider across the line at the end of the set number of laps wins the race.
Novak secured his second win of the event on Saturday in the four kilometer pursuit time trial race with the fastest time of 4:59.
Lukas, a freshman, had his best finish at the championships in the Cat 3/4 scratch race, finishing third.
