They raced their way to a handful of titles at December’s U.S. Paralympics Track Cycling National Championships at the U.S. Olympic Training Center Velodrome in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Schuble (Birmingham, Ala.) rolled her way to two individual titles and one team national championship. She took the women’s C5 pursuit in 4 minutes, 13.3 seconds, the 500-meter time trial in 40.7 seconds and teamed with Marine Corps/Army veteran Jason Kimball (Corning, Calif.) and Justin Widhalm (Fountain, Colo.) to take the team sprint in 1:10.5.

An Army veteran, Morelli (Leavenworth, Kan.) swept her C4 class – winning gold in the pursuit, time trial and scratch race. She finished the pursuit in 4:15.1 and also took the 500-meter time trial (42.4 seconds) and 30-lap C1-5 scratch race.

Widhalm earned an individual title, too, taking the men’s C4 time trial in 1:08.2 over Marine Corps veteran Jon Copsey (Carmel Valley, Calif.). Marine Corps veteran Scott Martin (Oceanside, Calif.) also earned an individual title, finishing the men’s C4 pursuit in 4:41.3, defeating Widhalm by 11 seconds.
