Hi MTBA Members!
We wanted to keep in touch in the lead up to the HOME WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS coming up this September in Cairns – where we hope we will see all of your smiling faces trackside cheering us and all of the Aussie team on! Who knows when the next big event will land in Australia so we should all make the most of this amazing opportunity!
As with every race season – 2017 has been full of up’s and down’s – Win’s, podiums and disappointments! We have just finished up a solid training block at altitude in Boulder, Colorado as we lead into the second half of the season with the Mont Sainte Anne World Cup this weekend.
It’s only 4 weeks till we land back in Australia to prepare for Cairns but in the meantime we have the famous Monte Sainte Anne World Cup (don’t forget to keep watching it live on RedBull TV), a US Pro XC Race in New York and the World Cup Finals in Val di Sole, Italy.
The first half of the season went great – there was so much work put in over the Aussie summer to have us in Europe and ready to race – Bec took an 8th place at the World Cup opener in Czech Republic and then landed her second ever World Cup podium in Albstadt which gave her great confidence and she took the Swiss Bike Cup win the following weekend.
Dan’s season opener was a little bumpier with a crash at the first round of the World Cup but a few weeks later he was back to his fine form taking out the Argovia Cup in Switzerland.
The last two World Cup’s in Andorra and Lenzerheide were deeply disappointing for both of us – so much work goes into what we do, particularly this year on and off the bike and to fall short of your expectations is tough. But we are working hard to be back there soon!
One of the most exciting things we are excited to share in the lead up to Cairns is our new clothing range!! Thanks to Motion Never Stop, you can buy our #becanddan range of cycling kit and all of the profits go towards our racing campaign this year. We would love to see our colourful jerseys lining the course in Cairns this year. The support coming from our fellow mountain bikers around Australia has been overwhelming this season – we will continue to keep our heads down and work hard each day in the hope to do you proud in Cairns!
Thanks for the ongoing support!
Bec and Dan.
