The food at the Olympic Training Center was awesome and I now have a good reason to work hard to get back there, unlimited good food. The camp was at a pretty high altitude so it made it harder to breath but overall I had some good rides, I was happy with my training and it was a great experience.
I came back on Sunday, then on Tuesday I drove with my family to South Carolina to ride at the Hincapie Gran Fondo. I am doing the 80 mile Gran Fondo this Saturday. Today I got to go on a recon of part of the course with a great group of riders. Besides George Hincapie, there were at least three other former professional riders. Christian Van de Velde, Erik Zabel, and Bobby Julich. It was a great ride in the hills of South Carolina. We rode around 55 miles today.
This is really great training for me because recently I was lucky enough to be selected to ride at the Revolution Series in the UK over the next few months. The Revolution Series is a three part track racing series that takes place in London, Glasgow, and Manchester. A lot of great professional track riders race there and i'm very proud to say that I will be in the “Future Stars” Group.
