TREVISO!!! I have arrived! Thursday, January 24, 2008

We arrived late last night, so today was officially the first day really here. Our main event today, aside from a lot of food and eating, was official training at the course. We rode to the venue from our hotel on 'sketchy' roads and immediately rode the course. The venue and course is pretty amazing. And you really couldn't beat the weather. Sunny and beautiful. I hope we will see more of that sunshine. While riding the course, I think it finally hit me that here I am, at the world championships for cyclocross. WOW! And the main event is still days away. Check out the silly video on http://www.amydombroski.blogspot.com/. Here are a few pictures she took while we were at the course today!

The lake with the course off in the distance by the white building.
Not a bad view of the mountains.
The course is sooo fun!
The stairs with the camera on rails to follow riders.
My head and the finish line!
Chilling before riding to the course. Kerry B, me & Rachel L.

Wow, looks like a good course. I wish the Oregon courses would return to the days of multiple runups per lap like that.

Good luck! We're rooting for you here in OBRA.
