A Legacy of Champions
Much of the WSC’s success is owed to the club’s thriving racing program. Based on the coaching regime designed and implemented by Mike Walden (USA Cycling Hall of Fame coach), the racing program targets the specific needs of athletes ranging from entry-level racers to national-and international-caliber cyclists.
The program has produced more than 100 National Champions, 300 National medalists, and several Olympic and Pan Am athletes. The legacy of Wolverine champions includes professional athletes such as Frankie Andreu, who competed in 9 Tour de France races, including the two US Postal Team victories in 1999 and 2000 with Lance Armstrong. World class athletes including Sue Novara-Reber (two-time World Champion), Connie Paraskevin-Young (four-time World Champion and 1988 Olympic bronze medalist), John Coyle (1994 Olympic medalist) and Sheila Young (three-time World Champion), all began as Wolverines. A champion speed-skater, Young also collected three medals, including gold at the 1976 Winter Olympics.
