The members of student’s mountainbike and cycling association Dutch Mountains in Maastricht are in for sports and a sociable time. Cycling and mountainbiking is possible on any level, from starter who never rode on a racing- or mountainbike before to experienced competitive riders with a license. Besides sports, there is also more than enough time to be sociable. We have monthly activities, three member’s weekend a year and more than enough fun in between.
Every week we have two open trainings were you can join us. Tuesday at 18:30 and Sunday at 10:00. We always gather in front of the University Sports Center (UM Sports). Both trainings last for 2 hours and the training is for road cyling and mountain biking. If you don’t have a bike and/or a helmet yet, let us know! We have a few club bikes and helmets available. If you have more questions, don’t hesitate and contact us by mail: [email protected]. Hopefully we see you there!
Besides the Math Salden tour last Saturday, was it also time for the last students cup of this academic year! The races took place in the Wilhelminapark in Utrecht.
Four members of DM participated: Martijn and Thom participated in the category men without a license and Lieske and Lotte participated in the category female. Both Martijn and Thom rode a strong race and Thom eventually sprinted to a nice third place, whereas Martijn got an unfortunate flat tire.
Lieske rode very strong in the women’s race. She continuously attacked and tried to get away from the leading group, but she sprinted to a nice first place in the final lap! This means that she preserved her second place in the general classification! Unfortunately, Lotte had to stop soon due to material issues.
Last Saturday, some of members of Dutch Mountains participated in the ‘Omloop Math Salden’ organized by our main sponsor Math Salden. It was a beautifully, sunny day and there were a couple of stops along the marked route through the hills of Limburg where it was possible to refuel yourself with some sport nutrition. We would like to thank Math Salden for organizing this tour, we have had a nice day and we are already looking forward to next year! We would like to recommend you to participate as well!
