Val di Sole World Cup

On Sunday, I finished in 14th place at the Val di Sole World Cup. While I’ve done better on paper during the 2016 season (6th in Ste Anne and 12th in Cairns), the races where I performed last year were less attended and the percentage of time I finished behind the leaders was greater. Simply put, this past weekend showed I’ve made some progress in closing that gap to the front of the race.

2017 World Cups: Nove Mesto and Albstadt

Finishing felt good. It seemed like an immediate antidote for the disappointment I felt. But I kept myself together afterwards and so far on this trip home; which hasn't even been that hard. In bike racing, you just never know how an experience will end, however much you try to anticipate the challenges and control the variables.

And the '15 World Cup begins...

Even though I didn't have the crash-free race I'd hoped for, I did a lot of things really well today, and, most importantly, in the days and weeks leading up to the start of the World Cup season. I'm still feeling very confident in my training, my equipment, and my ability to perform when I'm on the start line waiting for the gun to go off.
