World Cup Racing is Back!
7 Months later, this time wearing the rainbow stripes around my chest rather than racing to gain them, it felt like things were starting up where they left off. Maja and I were battling it out at the front of a race. This weekend however, one of the best women in the world was also my Canadian teammate Emily Batty, who showed she is not only aiming to make the Olympic team, but can go to London and perform. It’s always exciting when new riders reach the podium, and in such a convincing fashion, as it raises the bar for all of us. I couldn’t help feeling proud mid-race at the level and depth of the women’s field. The racing was tight, fast and covered some pretty gnarly sections. It was awesome.
