World Travel

It’s been nearly two months since my last post, during which my racing and training has taken me to eight countries on three continents. It’s hard to regularly publish posts with this amount of travel, but I’ll try to be more regular going forward. When I last checked in I had just recovered from Covid…

Colombia and Covid

Since I last checked in, I’ve had some ups and downs. After a solid block of training in Los Angeles, I performed well at a few races in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania. From there I traveled to Cali, Colombia, for my first experience representing the US at a Nations Cup, among the world’s highest tiers of track…

The Season Starts: Maine, Colorado, Pennsylvania, California, and Colombia

Since my last post in March I wrapped up the spring semester, spent three weeks in Colorado for a high-altitude training camp, and am now in Trexlertown, Pennsylvania for a national team training camp and my first track races of the year. Soon I’ll be off to Colombia to race the third round of the…

Los Angeles Training Camp

I’m currently writing from 30,000 feet as I fly back to Maine from Los Angeles, where I spent the past two weeks of Bowdoin’s (my university) spring break. The first half of my semester flew by, with classes, riding, and cross-country skiing taking up most of my time. Although Maine winters are wonderful for skiing,…

Welcome to 2022

Time has flown by since I came back to the U.S. at the end of August. I completed the fall semester at my university, Bowdoin College, in Brunswick, Maine, signed a new contract for a French professional track cycling team, and have spent the past four weeks in Los Angeles, California for a warm-weather track…

July Recap

Since I last checked in, I’ve had a whirlwind of racing adventures across Italy and France. This post will cover my July racing, and I’ll publish another in a few weeks that will cover August and reflect on the past eight months I’ve spent in Europe and what’s next. My first race in July was…

German Racing, Velodrome Physics, and Back to France

After a small break from racing in mid-May, I drove northeast from Chambéry to the small southern German town of Singen. My route went east across Switzerland, then north from Zurich. Surprisingly, border control was non-existent, even with Covid still a major concern in Europe. I just drove across. My destination was a two-day track…

Track and Road Racing in Full Swing

The past month has been a whirlwind of travel and racing.  France was in its third national lockdown for most of April, which meant a few weeks without racing. Having been sick just a few weeks earlier, the lull in racing let me ease back into training. It took three weeks to bounce back from…

Viruses, Velodromes, and Visibility

Since I last checked in two weeks ago, there have been several developments here in the foothills of the Alps. Most importantly, France went into its third national Covid lockdown, this time for the totality of April. For the public, this means continuing the 7pm to 6am curfew, closing nonessential businesses, and now a 10km…

Pelousey Classic … and a Cancelled Race!

Spring is in full swing here in Chambéry, and that means beautiful riding weather! I had my first ride in just bibshorts and a jersey yesterday, and though I’m grateful for the weather, the 80 degree high prompts concerns for the temperatures the summer may bring. Below you’ll find a few pictures taken on some…
