As Bend natives probably know now, it's been announced that USA Cycling Junior, U23 and Elite Nationals are taking place in Bend this year.
Even though we now have a race/travel budget, I'm trying to take a leadership role on my U23 Development team and I'm trying to extend that budget, by reducing costs here and there.
Therefore, if any Bend natives would like to extend a hand to a group of ambitious U23 and Junior racers in our goals of glory, we would all appreciate it very much.
I can also cook very well; I can whip up some delicious authentic Italian and Mexican recipes (or as close to authentic as it's possible to get). But then again, I can be cocky .
Send a PM to obra3. He's our fearless Oregon Bicycle Racing Association leader. He may be able to help you out somehow.
