You should tell him to keep his elbow inside his saddle, doesn't have to lift as high and more clearance if necessary. Also doesn't end as badly if he happens to clip the barrier

Cycling activity gets him off campus (base). So while it would be logical to narrow focus, by doing more disciplines he gets to go to 7 nationals in 2018 and a few other events vs having to attend the football games and do push-ups. So while doing better always matters, it is primarily fun.

Looks awesome! That hill is definitely where I'd post up with a few beers.

Love the guy carrying someone's bike.

Sometimes it's good to be the early race.... course was damp but grippy except some loose sections


2 hours later for GF's race (different hill but similar steepness)
