BREVARD, N.C.- The Brevard College cycling program is pleased to announce the signing of Walker Shaw of Hendersonville, North Carolina as part of their 2014 incoming class.
Shaw is a professional downhill mountain bike racer for the SRAM/Troy Lee Designs team, where he has competed in World Cups, US National events, and multiple World Championships.
"We are extremely excited to welcome Walker to Brevard College and our cycling team,” said head coach Brad Perley. “He’s another great addition to the BC community, and will play an integral part in the constant building of Tornado Cycling.”
Shaw will focus primarily on mountain bike racing, but will also race cyclo-cross for the Tornados.
"I couldn't be more excited for the coming years as a member of the Brevard College community and cycling team,” said Shaw. “Growing up locally, I have been well aware of the school and it's accomplishments in cycling.”
“I’m also looking forward to taking my riding to a new level across the disciplines, and I can't think of a more suiting environment than Brevard College."
