Bosco Adds National Titles To Banner Year

Samantha Bosco, a 2016 Paralympian who won two world championships and was unbeaten in world cup racing this year in road cycling, added a pair of national track titles to her banner year on Sept. 9 and 10 in Carson, California.

 

Other cyclists winning double gold at the USA Cycling Para-cycling Track National Championships included Paralympic medalists Joe Berenyi and Aaron Keith.

On The Road To Colorado Springs

Kate Brim, who won two road world championships and two world cup races in her international debut in August, celebrated her move from Michigan to Colorado Springs, Colorado, with an Instragram post.

 

Brim, 24, is a native of Ukraine and grew up in Lowell, Michigan.

 

“Last long ride in Michigan before moving to Colorado Springs to become a resident at the US Olympic and Paralympic training center,” she wrote. “I am so humbled and honored to be accepted into this incredible program and cannot wait to take in all it has to offer! It is a bittersweet feeling getting ready for this next chapter in my life. I have lived in the same home for over 20 years and I can’t believe the day has come, but I am ready for the new adventures!”



Morelli In The Fast Lane

Four-time Paralympic medalist Shawn Morelli visited Kansas Speedway on the weekend that the track was hosting Hollywood Casino 400, one of NASCAR’s playoff races in September.

 

“Thank you @toyotausa for the opportunity as a Toyota Athlete to represent you and Team USA @toyotausa @kansasspeedway it was amazing to share a little of my story to such awesome Toyota fans,” Morelli said on Instagram.



Weekend In Big Apple

Jill Walsh, a native New Yorker and a retired New York state trooper, hit the big city one recent weekend.

 

She has won medals in both of her Paralympic Games, including a bronze in the road race last year in Tokyo.



Making Trades For Charity

Speaking of New York, Oksana Masters, a 17-time Paralympic medalist, hit Wall Street one recent day.

 

She was working the phones for Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day. Cantor Fitzgerald is a global financial firm with its main headquarters based in New York City.

 

“Felt a new type of rush today making big trades on the floor for this years Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day,” Masters said on Instagram. “I am here supporting my charity @wiggleyourtoesorg which will be receiving support from @cfrelieffund The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund through our participation in Cantor Fitzgerald Charity Day.”



Foody Time For Cyclists

U.S. cyclists took to the kitchen one recent day.

 

That’s food for fuel.



Para-cycling hits Namibia

The streets of Windhoek, Namibia, were filled with handcyclists at least one day this summer.

 

A race was part of an initiative in Namibia to get Para-cycling on center stage in the south African country and into other events such as the Desert Dash, a 400-kilometer race that winds through Namibia’s desert each December.
