Nicholas Beirne signed with the Cycling Knights last week.
Nicholas Beirne (Goshen, Kentucky) has committed to Marian University as a student-cyclist beginning next fall.
"We have watched Nicholas race in the Midwest for a couple years now and we're excited he has chosen to pursue a degree alongside cycling at Marian," said Head Coach Dean Peterson.
After graduation from North Oldham High School, Beirne will study business management at Marian while expanding his ten years of cycling experience in the framework of Marian's collegiate cycling program. Beirne races mainly in the cyclocross and road disciplines, but aims to expand into the mountain bike discipline in collegiate racing.
Beirne has placed top-five in the Elite Men category in the OVCX series, a strong regional cyclocross race series, and has competed at both road and cyclocross nationals as a junior.
