Over and Out

Euro cross camp six has come to a close, Cody and myself are safely back home in Cali after a long 24 hour day starting in Brussels at 6 and arriving at home around 10.
Camp was an absolute succes for both of us, with no major mechanicals, ingeries, or illnesses, not much could have gone better. We ended the trip Friday in the GP st Niklass, were we finnaly got a small tast of some Belgian mud, Cody was able to put a good cap to the trip as he was able to capitalize on his competitors mistakes and get a well deserved second place on the day, while I started in the Eliet mens field lined up with many of the cross super starts like Albert, Wellens, Al, and all the top US guys, in total we had 13 US guys on the line it was a pretty cool thing to see and take part in, some highlites to my race included passing Driscoll, Powers and Thijs Al (Zolder WC winner) on the first lap and finishing as second U-23 behind Summerhill. It really was a grat way to end the camp for both of us.
All in all, this has been a great experiance for the both of us, the racing, the new friends, all of it was a blast, thanks to everyone who made this trip possibal and help get us that much closer to our overall goals.

Thanks for reading till next year,
Jeremy Ferguson
