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 Keeganís report from Day 3
Italy Day 4:
Today was a good day! After some espresso and
breakfast, Tinker, Alex, Taylor and I rolled out for a short ride. We first
climbed up this narrow twisty Italian road and then found some fast and techy
singletrack that dropped into the next valley.
Once again the Scalpel ripped it. Alex and I
found this little paved path that topped out at a whopping 45% grade!! As
Tinker and Taylor smartly watched from the top and laughed at us struggling on
up this little path. Then we made our way home we showered up and then headed
out with the journalists on a ride, tons of fun! We rode the 24 hour world
champs course again with a different climb up this time. Only one more full day
left here in Final Ligure, so lets hope itís a good one, but at the same time I
canít wait to get home and start racing!
