Two weeks ago, I headed off to Boulder, Colorado (again) for my second World Cup of the season! I had a great time and placed a respectable 23rd. I feel that I did well for how stacked the competition was, but I know I could definitely have done better.
The weekend started off by flying out with my mom to Denver on Friday morning, then driving out to Boulder that afternoon for the opening ceremonies. The competition was kicked off in grand style by a parade straight through downtown Pearl Street with all 13 National Teams present, and a bongo-playing marching band leading the way. Reminded me a lot of France a couple years ago... gotta love Boulder. The parade wrapped up in a local tavern with the head of USAC and some IFSC delegates speaking, and free food for everyone. Afterwards, I hung out my good friends Alex David Johnson and Ben Hoberg as well as the Canadian National Team for a while before heading back to our hotels.
