Closer to home, Uhrlass won many local and regional titles, culminating in the North American championship in 1961. As a cyclist, his greatest victories were the 1957 Tour of Somerville and the 1961 Tour of Fitchburg. Seven years later, he was picked for the Olympic track cycling pursuit team, becoming the second American Olympian to compete in both cycling and speed skating.
