Universal Storage Containers LLC (USC), a provider of foldable, portable moving and storage containers for self-storage and other industries, is celebrating the successful 2013 season of its sponsored cycling team. The USC Cycling Team raced 110 times and earned 40 top-10 finishes, eight top-three finishes and two wins. It was the second year USC sponsored the group, which includes 20 Colorado-based amateur bike racers who compete in road, mountain-bike and cyclo-cross races.
Over the course of the season, the squad raced under the USC flag in all sorts of weather. This season saw tougher conditions across the board than the last for us, but Im proud of the way our riders came out every weekend, rain or shine, freeze or thaw, said Rod Bolls, USC Vice President and cycling-team manager. Our individual results were solid, and that helped us in the team classification, which is something we value highly here. Its a very competitive state.
The USC team took first place in the mens cyclo-cross 35-plus, Category 3, and eighth in the 35-plus team category. The squad also enjoyed racing in the USA Cycling National Cyclo-Cross Championships in Boulder, Colo., where the team is based.
It allowed us all to come out and compete late in the season against top talent and fly the USC banner high, Bolls said. I can only hope next season sees our momentum continue.
Based in New Canaan, Conn., USC has offices in Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts and Michigan. Its products include portable "instant office" containers, portable walk-in coolers and freezers, emergency-response containers, and more.
Members of the USC Cycling Team celebrate a victory.
