California US Cup Racing

Once again I’m typing while flying. This time I’m somewhere over the southern Pacific in a Boeing 777, headed for touchdown in Sydney where I catch one last flight to Cairns, QLD for the World Cup opener (watch it live here). I’m just past the mid-way point in my five-weekend racing block and time is starting to fly (it’s like I’m missing a day or something. oh wait, that happens when you fly to Australia!).

Final US Cup - Colorado Springs

It's strange to sit down and write an update from last weekend's final US Cup race in Colorado Springs, CO after my first day of training on the World Cup course in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. A part of successfully racing back-to-back race weekends is becoming adept at switching gears after a race and immediately start preparing for the next event.

US Cup #3 - Bonelli Park

For the 3rd round of the US Cup, we were back on the dusty slopes of Bonelli Park in San Dimas, CA. The course hardly resembled the first version only a few weeks prior--it was far better despite a chewed up track with plenty of loose corners, braking bumps and enough rocks to carefully consider tire selection. This was an HC level event, which means there are enough UCI points up for grab to attract some top-international racers.
