Eric Young and Gavin Hoover have been focusing their training and preparation for the USA Cycling Track National Championships held this past weekend in Carson, CA. Both have trained with and been integral players in the newly revived men’s track program within USA Cycling, putting them both in great positions for success at the National Championships.
Young won the team’s first National Championship in the Scratch Race on the 4th of July which set the tone for the remainder of the weekend. With 6 more events to tackle, Eric placed an extremely close 2nd in the Kilo, earning the Silver Medal. He and Gavin went on to race the Madison, finishing 2nd again in a close finish.
For Hoover, he had his sights set on the Omnium event and came away the National Champion, winning in commanding fashion. Along with his 2nd in the Madison with Young, he finished 3rd in the Points race as well, rounding out a very successful weekend with the Bronze Medal.
Both athletes have joined the team in Canada to race the remainder of BC Superweek.
