A nice week getting adjusted to the new digs in Czech, working out the jetlag, discovering new roads, trails, fire grilled dinners, and a C2 race near Linz, Austria. Second chances don’t come often, so I was pretty dang happy to restart the 2020 race season with a 4th place finish.
Quick pit stop at home to visit my parents en route to Europe. Air travel is a little more tedious, but we all felt well prepared and safe throughout our journey.

First bike trip abroad and not wasting any time diving straight in to the two biggest cyclocross World Cup’s on the circuit. Great racing, crazy fans, awesome team.
First it’s excitement to start riding again, then it’s the anticipation of the competition, the race nerves, then the relief of washing away the unknown.
Week 1, part 4. Brief backstory.
