“USA Cycling has a strong team heading to Hoogerheide in a few weeks,” said USA Cycling’s mountain bike and cyclocross director, Jesse Anthony. The team just finished three weeks of racing in Belgium where they experienced European racing and sharpened their skills ahead of the World Championships.

“The development team, support by the MudFund, had two podiums in the junior races and are well-prepared for the lead into the World Championships including the final World Cup in France before we head to Hoogerheide.”
