Tunkhannock’s David Novak will be able to don the Stars-and-Stripes jersey of a national champion for the next year.
Novak, a junior at Lindsey Wilson College in Kentucky, used a late surge to win the individual pursuit race at USA Cycling’s Collegiate Track National Championships, according to USA Cycling’s Twitter feed.
Novak won in a time of 4 minutes, 43 minutes, thre seconds faster than second-place finisher Zack Noonan of Fort Lewis College.
“And Novak of @LWCCycling takes the title in the last heat with incredible last few laps! Noonan slots into 2nd,” USA Cycling tweeted.
