Helen Wyman Returns to Nittany Lion Cross
Nine-time British National and Two-time European Cyclocross Champion Helen Wyman returns to Breinigsville, PA for the 11th annual Nittany Lion Cross. It will also mark the debut for the NEXT-Wyman project; an initiative planned to try to fill the void between the sports leading riders and the up and coming individuals that struggle alone to reach those heights.
When asked about he return to Nittany Cross, Wyman said “Nittany was one my first US races, and has always been a favorite of mine. I can’t wait to get back to Breinigsville to take on the challenges of the fast course once again. This year I’ll also be traveling with Amira Mellor from the UK, who’ll be representing NEXT-Wyman, and I’m really proud her first race of the season, and the first race ever for NEXT-Wyman will be Nittany.”
Wyman will be one of the favorites amongst what promises to be a deep and star studded field at “Nittany” in mid-September.
