After being invited to join the Cannondale Factory
Racing team, junior rider Keegan Swenson has enjoyed the full support only a
top professional team can provide. This week Swenson traveled to Italy for
Cannondale Camp, a four-day retreat of riding and getting to know his new
teammates. While in Italy, Swenson will be accompanied by Tinker Juarez,
Jeremiah Bishop, and Alex Grant.
Read Keegan’s report from Day 3 below,
Italy Day 3:
I am about feeling 100% back to normal today (no jetlag!) which
is a great feeling. Although I am sure the massive amount of espresso has
helped as well. After some breakfast we took some headshots and a few group
photos of CFR (Cannondale Factory Racing). Then we loaded up the bikes for a
photo shoot out on the trail.
It was a blast! We rode this really cool trail that kind of
swooped back a forth through this little valley. The trail was like Spin Cycle
in Park City if you have ridden that.
It was a ton of fun and I hope the Ale (our photographer)
got some great shots. Then after the photo shoot we ate a bit of lunch,
showered up and headed back out for some more pictures. This time we went on
the other side of the valley up in the mountains (I think…). Anyway it was
great riding, lots of tight switchbacks and a few small drops. We then got too
meet the journalists who will be riding with us for the next few days, so that
was pretty cool. Cannot wait for the next few days! Should be lots of fun!
