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!
