Cumberland University Director of Athletics Ron Pavan named former team and staff member Britton Kinnard as the head coach of the cycling program in August 2013.
Kinnard was a three-year team member for the Bulldogs and served as the program’s graduate assistant in 2012-13. The Carlisle, Pa., native became involved in competitive cycling in the early 90’s, eventually making his way to Belgium in 1996 where he raced for various teams over several seasons, primarily the now defunct ICSA.
From there he competed throughout Europe in both amateur and professional races. He now lives in Nashville and continues to compete as a Category 1 road racer.
Kinnard received his bachelor’s in Business Administration from Cumberland in 2012 and just completed course work for his master’s in Business Administration at Cumberland this month.
