The word is that at least Vervecken is going to make it to Cross Vegas. This won’t be the first time he has raced in the US. He came over for a few races back in 2003 (or was it 2002?). I remember watching him take care of the field at Jackson Middle School in Portland, OR. He called that course the best he’d seen in the US. I know I miss it.
In other news, Providence doesn’t look like they have it together enough to host the WC race — or so says cyclingnews.com in this article. If Providence doesn’t get it, then where would it go? The smart money would be on another east coast venue. But given that Vervecken is willing to travel all the way to Vegas for a race, that might open up more of the US as a possible venue. Anyone got any intersting rumors?
