After a hard 3 days of racing we started our travel to Wilmington Delaware, we ended up staying in New Market Virginia for a couple days. It was some great riding there with very minimal traffic and some awesome small roads in perfect condition. Even did some dirt roads to with it up a little bit.

Then on Thursday we were in Wilmington and talking to Elementary schools about bike safety. The first school we went to the whole school came and listen to us talk. It is very important to teach the next generation about bike safety!!

Then Friday evening was a short proluge with a cobble stone climb for the finish. The course was very technical but fast. Ben was able to take 2nd and I got 6th right ahead of Conor for 7th. Then Saturday night was the main event, a cit downtown. This was a very hot race with it being in the middle of the day. It was a fast hard race but in the end we grabbed the last podium spot with Ben taking 3rd. Sunday we all participated in the Grand Fondo. I have never done a Grand Fondo before so it was kind of nice to change it up a bit and not worry about going fast and just relaxing and talking to the locals on a great scenic ride.
Now we are currently in New York visiting family before all the Americans head to SC on Friday for US Pro road nationals and the other race in New Jersey. All my relatives live in NY so it is a great opportunity to say hello since we were so close. The last time I was here was in Middle school. The riding is not super great but we make it happen.
