Name: Drew Ceccato
About: Drew here, current president (but don’t hold that against me…). My favorite rides are anything flat with arbitrary sprint points; bonus points for donuts. Recently, my favorite ice cream has been those swirl waffle cones you can get at the padres game. My dream bike changes every day, but a safe bet is something steel, neon, and 90’s.
Name: Lilly McCormick
About: Hi! My name is Lilly, and I am the treasurer for the cycling team. My favorite road rides are hilly and without a lot of traffic, like Highland Valley Road or the Great Western Loop! I like lemon sorbet right after a hot ride, and am lucky enough to be riding my orange dream bike!
Name: Sydnee Hyman
About: Hey I’m Sydnee! Any all day epic event that requires a recovery nap constitutes my favorite ride. I could eat chocolate all day, although I’m told others classify it as a dessert. My dream bike list is too long to write out, but my roadie side lusts after a Ritte Ace.
Mountain Bike Captain
Name: Daniel Yang
About: Favorite ride is El Prieto in Pasadena. Favorite dessert is Pannikan’s blueberry muffin. Dream bike is Allez Sprint with 1x drivetrain.
Name: Eric Geier
About: Eric is excited to be back in the position of track captain! His favorite place to be is first wheel behind the motor during Madison training, and he strongly believes that any diameter carrot cake can be “made for one.” His dream bike is a Stoemper Angus.
Name: Matt Clemens
About: Hey I’m Matt! My favorite route to ride is the century out to Julian and back because my
favorite dessert is apple pie. My dream bike would be a Specialized S-Works Tarmac with CLX 50s and sram etap.
Social and Recruiting
Name: Roger O’Neill
About: Howdy! I’m Roger. If you thought you saw me in the Tour de France, you got the wrong guy. For me, cycling is about hanging out with my pals, eating food, nursing strange tan lines, and most importantly, getting huge legs. My favorite bike at the moment is my Santa Cruz Hightower and I hope to have many more favorites before I die.
Name: Tiffany Lee
About: My favorite ride is anything flat or anything that involves donuts. Although a cup of boba milk tea after a ride is the best, actually it is the best anytime. As for dream bike, my Specialized comes pretty close but a custom painted colorful frame would be awesome.
Clothing (AKA Quartermaster)
Name: Joey Palambo
About: Hi, I’m Joey and I will again be watery for the UCSD cycling team. My favorite ride is a completely open velodrome. I eat just enough ice cream to keep the skin suit tight (black raspberry please). And my dream bike is a Supersix Evo Black Inc. with Sram Red e-tap.
