Meeting Speaker

We were honored to welcome Knoxville’s own Kent Bostick as our January Meeting Presenter – his resume includes being on the US Olympic Cycling Team, Pan American Games Gold Medalist, USCF Master’s Rider of the Year for several years, Master’s National Champion and Master’s World Champion. 

Kent has a wealth of knowledge and experience that he graciously shared with the group. We saw up-close  his competition jerseys and his championship bicycles. He shared entertaining stories and we viewed photos and watched interesting videos.
