Winning ways & World Cup representation

A successful weekend was had by our 2 cyclocross riders- master rider Rob Purcell was representing in the UK at the final round of the Eastern League while Jeremy Durrin was racing the final round of the UCI world cup series in Hoogerheide, NL.

Rob rounded out his season in style taking the WIN in the final round of the Eastern league and also winning the overall series. Rob has had a successful season with many wins and has also been competing in the national trophy series.

Congrats Rob.

Meanwhile in the Netherlands Jeremy Durrin competed in the final round of the world cup series.

Here is what he had to say:

”Super fast racing yesterday at the Hoogerheide World Cup.

I had a great start from the 5th row, and moved up to the low 30’s. But the speed also lead to some crashing. And I went down at the end of lap two which had me chasing to get back to the second group.

But I settled into a group with some fellow Americans and raced a consistent race. Not happy with my placing, 49th but I am now looking forward to more next weekend at World Championships in Luxembourg.”

 


Jeremy Durrin named to USA Worlds Team after a successful cyclocross season

American cyclocross star Jeremy Durrin has been selected to represent the USA in the Cyclocross World Championships on 29th January in Bieles, Luxembourg.

Jeremy Durrin heading into the USA Cyclocross National Championships

The USA National CX Champs in Hartford, CT are tomorrow!!!

Jeremy has had a successful consistent season. He has accumulated 5 UCI podiums, 2 UCI wins and competed in 2 World Cups. He is currently ranked 61st in the UCI World rankings and is 8th ranked elite US male.

Jeremy has spent his cyclocross season US based. His biggest focus is now the National Championships, which are only 1 hour from his Westhampton home in Massachusetts. It will feel very much like a home nationals. Jeremy’s family and friends will all be there to show support and cheer him on.

Sunday is race day- the elite men race at 3pm. There will be a live stream of the race on the USA Cycling YouTube channel.

We at VELO wish Jeremy all the Good Luck, Fast Legs with smooth and consistent laps. Go get it Jeremy.

Quick chat with Jeremy after his Pre-ride today heading into tomorrows champs.

– How was the course today?

SNOW & ICE!! Kind of gnarly! Very technical and difficult. The course will change lap to lap and make for some real interesting racing.

-What are your hopes for tomorrows race?

I have a front row start so I would like to take advantage of that and put  myself in a position to make the lead group early on as the lead group will probably split up pretty quickly. If I can get a top 5 I will be exceedingly happy. It will all come down to riding the cleanest race you can.

– How has your prep been coming into the the US Nationals?

Being able to stay at home in Massachusetts and prepare has been great mentally and training on my home roads just makes everything easier. Training has been able to go smoothly in the weeks leading up and low stress. I’m excited to have a National Championships just 50 mins from my home. Usually I have to fly to the champs!
