Fresh from US Cyclocross Nationals, sixteen American riders are now in Belgium attending US cyclo-cross national coach Geoff Proctor's Euro 'Cross Camp IV. The Junior, U23 and Elite men's riders will compete in races from December 23, 2006, to January 3, 2007.
Proctor started the program in 2003 and runs the camps during his winter vacation from his job teaching high school in Montana. This is the fourth year that top US riders will be given this opportunity to gain valuable 'cross racing experience in Europe and to prepare for the world championships in late January.
Coach Proctor and his riders are taking turns contributing diary entries to Cyclingnews during the camp. Catch up with them here:
