Acacia rider and junior Kevin Vanes realized something after his first Little 500 race last year: "I needed to learn how to ride the bike."

Alpha Delta Pi rider hopes to lead team to success

·

Playing on the softball team and performing as captain of her dance team in Newport, N.Y., was the only physical activity that Alpha Delta Pi senior Emily Derkasch said she did in high school.

Sophomore immersed in tradition, hype of race

·

Sophomore Jenn Wangerin wouldn't have believed it if someone told her a year ago that she would be riding for the Roadrunners in the 2001 women's Little 500. A year ago, she had no idea what the Little 500 was. "Last year I read about the Cutters winning, and I think that was the first time I ever heard about the race," Wangerin said. "I'm from Dyer, Ind., and my coach is from Munster (Ind.), so the local paper had a story about that, too. But that was it."
