That was quite a rough weekend we had but we thoroughly enjoyed it. A sports training camp in the wilderness packed with athletes from different sports, well we learned a lot in addition to ant, mosquito and other insect bites. Back home in the US, it’s the USA Cycling Elite Track Championships 2010, and it’s quite unfortunate that we weren’t able to attend it in Carson, California. This event was one of our favorites and we almost never failed to attend this and other USA Cycling track events. Nevertheless, a good friend updated us on the action in the track now that the event is over.
We have here in this photo, the top sprint cyclists in the USA today. From L-R: Andy Lakatosh, Jimmy Watkins, Giddeon Massie, David Espinoza and Kevin Mansker
We have here our keirin champions: Andy Lakatosh, Giddeon Massie, Matt Baranoski, Jimmy Watkins, and David Espinoza
Here’s the points race winners: Zak Kovalcik, Shane Klein, Daniel Holt, Cody O’Reilley, Austin Carroll
4K pursuit winners: Chris Carlson, Daniel Harm, Adam Liebovitz, Roman Kilun, David Swanson
Team OUCH won the men’s team pursuit.
Well, that looks like an awfully crowded team pursuit podium.
It’s too bad we missed all the action, after all this is quite possibly the biggest track cycling event in the United States where the best track cyclists gather and compete. The event is an amazing display of athleticism, sportsmanship, and skill showcasing our very own homegrown cyclists who may not be at the level of Chris Hoy but nevertheless can stand on their own as a world class track cyclist. Congratulations to all the winners!
(We’re still reviewing videos sent by our friends back home, and we’re so busy viewing it we might as well spend the whole day for it)
