DSU recruits Tour de Kota team

Dakota State University, the second stop of the six-day, 430 mile Argus Leader Tour De Kota bike tour that will be held June 5-10, is recruiting alumni, friends, students and employees to join Team DSU on its trek to four other colleges and universities, as well as Mitchell and Freeman.

Team DSU will be wearing DSU-branded club cycling jerseys.  DSU riders are encouraged to place their orders by contacting the alumni office at 605.256.5857 or jona.schmidt@dsu.edu.  Jerseys are $50. 

"We are looking forward to having DSU blue worn with pride as our team tours eastern South Dakota," says Jona Schmidt, DSU Alumni Director.  Schmidt says several DSU faculty and staff are planning to ride.  "We want them to carry the DSU spirit on the ride, and obviously have some fun as they visit the other communities and campuses as well." 

DSU constituents must register for Tour de Kota online at http://www.tourdekota.com/.  By entering DS as the promo code, riders will identify themselves as members of Team DSU, benefitting the university.
