Biography

Kent Bostick improbably made the US Olympic Team in track cycling at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics at the age of 43. Bostick had been a force in various types of American cycling since the mid-1970s, finishing second in the 1978 Nevada City Classic. He was 1985 US Champion in the road time trial and won the 1987 US title in the road race. Bostick was twice a gold medalist at the Pan American Games, winning in 1987 in the team time trial, and in 1995 when he set a world record for the individual pursuit on the track.

Bostick’s palmares are almost too numerous to list, but his major titles include the above, and the 1991 USA Championships in the individual time trial, the general classification (GC) at the 1989 Vuelta de Bisbee, and the GC at the Wichita Falls Race in 1995-96.

Bostick was an engineer who managed an engineering company as a groundwater hydrologist in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He often supplemented his training by riding to and from work.
