Nathaniel headed to Belgium on the US Junior National Team

Nathaniel was selected for the US Junior National Team for road cycling. He is one of six 17-18 year olds who will represent the U.S. in a couple of international stage races in Europe. Today he is flying to Izegem, Belgium where he will be based in the USA Cycling guest house. He will compete in a Kermesse race on Saturday in Belgium. Next week he will travel with the team to a stage race in the Czech Republic called the Course de la Paix. In English it is called the Peace Race. It is a five day stage race contested by 20 national teams from all over the world. Some people call this the "Tour de France" for juniors. It is definitely one of the most important races on the international calendar. After that race he will be participating in a three day stage race in Germany. Then he will be heading back to the States on May 17th. We are proud of his drive and dedication to being the best athlete he can be. And we are even more proud of the his maturity and his dedication to his Christian faith.
