FALL FRENZY---ELITE 8
Congratulations to everyone who helped Vandy defeat Rochester in the Sweet 16 of Fall Frenzy. We were 150 miles behind last Wednesday afternoon, but came back to defeat them 969-900 miles. LSU is on the other side of the bracket, and we'd love to make it an all-SEC championship, but to do that, we need to win our Elite 8 round.
Your Mission: Ride for personal and Vanderbilt glory!
How: Log miles on our Expresso Bikes in the VRWC Cardio Loft
Dates: October 21 and Oct. 22
