I will be flying to Belgium on July 3rd for 10 days of riding and racing in Sankt Vith, Belgium at the Cleran MTB Cup; Landgraaf International, Netherlands; Schopp Bundesliga, Germany and Lenzerheide, Switzerland at the BMC Racing Cup with the USAC Team.
To say the least, I am very excited about this opportunity and the chance to represent USA!
As most of you know, cycling is a very expensive sport, especially for those of us pursuing a dream of national and international racing.
Starting June 25th, I will be traveling for a month starting with the Colorado Springs ProXCT race, then to Europe and finally to the USA Cycling Mountain Bike Nationals at Bear Creek Mountain Resort in Pennsylvania.
The expenses will pile up during this time and I am hoping that by using this GoFundMe account that many cyclist use to raise money for European races, I can take a little of the financial pressure off by off-setting my airfare of $1,538 plus a $1,000 camp fee that I am responsible for.
My family and I will make it work, one way or the other, but instead of other fund-raising ideas, we have decided to use this fund-raising site.
Thanks to all of you for your continued support and encouragement...it means so much!
