People always ask “How was Road Worlds!?” and it’s pretty hard to sum up the trip in one or two sentences. Having never been out of North America, going to Norway was overwhelming. The culture, cars, architecture, people, and the roads are all different than what I am used to.

Abitibi was one of the big races this year that I was really looking forward to, and it did not disappoint. With about 150 starters and a week-long stage race, not many guys have done anything comparable. The one thing that made Abitibi even more amazing was that I was racing with the national team, which was my goal at the start of the season. Being able to represent my country at an international event was a dream come true.
Before we even got to the start line of the junior men’s road race there were a couple things I knew were for sure going to happen. A lot of guys would try to go for a breakaway, the race was going to be a bit sketchy, and I had to race smart since I was solo.
The Junior Men’s Criterium, the event that I was looking forward to the most, besides the road race. Having won the title last year, I was so determined to defend it and go two for two. I hadn’t podiumed yet at Nationals so anything I had left had to go into this criterium.
With Tour de Bloom being the first stage race of the year everyone was excited to head down to Washington to test the waters in the American Pro 1/2 field. Paired with the beautiful countryside of Wenatchee and warm weather, we couldn’t wait to race.
