Fortunately, Rice righted the ship and closed strong down the stretch, finishing with four consecutive wins and five out of their last 6.

Grinding it out!

Approaching the grounds of the United States Air Force Academy just north of Colorado Springs, it’s unusual to look skyward and not find a plane, glider or other flying machine buzzing around the area.
