NJNYTC Abroad

“You have to give up your normal routine a bit when racing in Europe. It’s essential to just go with the flow of things rather than trying to maintain the pre-race rituals that are so comfortable at home.

With the time adjustments and the travel, you may not step on the line feeling perfect every time, but it’s about mixing it up and being competitive. There’s nothing to lose racing here, but a lot to gain.
— Kyle Merber - 4th European Trip
One of my biggest goals here is to see some castles, but it’s also a nice opportunity to race a lot in a short period of time. We’ve been training nonstop all year, and now the work is done. Time to play!

“It’s my first time in Europe, let alone racing, and I’m excited to chase some fast times and see some new places along the way. Hoping to return to the US with some new personal bests!
