Junior Conference

Hello Everybody! Yesterday we had a special junior conference that was started just a year before, where big names turned out once again speaking towards the “future” of cycling. Last season we were treated to the likes of Phillipe Gilbert and other notable names such as Christian Prudhomme (Tour de France President/Organizer). That was an eye-opener into just how much work went into a grand tour, along with what was best to do as a junior racer trying to make it into the big leagues. For these championships some big names came out again, with world champion Mark Cavendish and olympic champion Marianne Vos giving us advice. Here is a link to what they said-  http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/cavendish-and-vos-share-advice-with-juniors

This was a nice motivational boost before our early race on Sunday. At 8 am sharp we’ll be clipping in for a 129 kilometer joy ride, where a career-making opportunity is on the line. Thanks for reading! (Added note: I won a Giro Aeon helmet during a short quiz during the conference, whoo!)
