Scott Moninger retires

Scott Moninger
Congratulations and best wishes to Scott Moninger of BMC, who announced his retirement with 275 wins.

Moninger, who turns 41 in October, has raced professionally since 1991, and was twice the National Race Calendar points champion. Moninger won most of the biggest US races, including Redlands, the Tour de Toona, the Tour of the Gila, the Red Zinger Challenge, La Vuelta de Bisbee, and the Tour of Utah. He won the Mount Evans Hill Climb six times.

Although Moninger never raced on the European circuit, he represented the US at the amateur world championships in 1990 and at pro road race world championships in 1999, where Oscar Freire won his first title.

At right, Moninger was called out for the front row at the USA Cycling Pro Championships earlier this month, and recognized as the all-time US victory leader.

Isn't Scott's birthday October 20th, not Sept. 20?

Oops -- my bad. Temporary time warp. Corrected.
