The first three big weekends of racing have come and gone! Fontana, Bonelli, and Sea Otter were a lot of fun; managing class while traveling and racing has been difficult but rewarding.
On that front, I'll be graduating from UNC-CH this spring. With only two weeks left, it has been a bittersweet realization that this is the end of my time as an undergraduate. On the other hand, I'm excited to dedicate more time to training and racing and hopefully realize untapped potential on the bike.
The next block of racing will be in Europe with USA Cycling - I'll be spending three weeks abroad, heading to Austria, the Czech Republic, and finishing up in Germany for an UCI HC race and the first two rounds of the World Cup circuit.
With a strong results at Fontana and Bonelli especially, I'm looking forward to carrying momentum into the next couple of races.
