Cross 2013-2014 Recap – Nats!!
A look back at 2013
With National championship on our home turf in Boulder the turn out of BJC riders at Valmont was unprecedented. Over 50 BJC riders participated. Wow!
It takes courage and self confidence to toe the start line at the national championships. We are proud of all of our BJC riders. Remember, the goal is always to do your best no matter where you place. We hope you all had fun out there!
Coach Emily had these words for our BJC riders:
“I was so proud of all of you this week! What an opportunity — to race the National Championships at home on a course your coach designed and break it in for the best in the world! You all left it all on the course and showed respect, sportsmanship and encouragement to those around you. You all did amazing, I hope you got to take in the joy of it all and heard lots of people cheer your name.”
Coach Michael Robson had this observation:
“By the way, a quick pencil and paper tally revealed this: Colorado riders took home 13 bronze medals, 12 silver and 13 gold. That’s just over 11 pounds of gleaming metal.”
Nice work Boys
