Re-cap of 2009!

2009 was a busy year for us! We started the year forming our business here in Spain. It is not quite as easy as in the States and we lost count of the number of government offices we had to visit and get stamps from.

Ken managed teams for USA Cycling in Holland, South Africa, Australia and Switzerland. As well, we visited the US, Canada, South Africa, Italy, Belgium and Russia. Some of the highlights of the year:

  • Having a good time with the Cross Team in Holland – just thawed out.
  • Experiencing and meeting the great people in South Africa! Travelling there re-ignited Ken’s passion for travel.
  • Seeing Donny Robinson win BMX Worlds in Australia!
  • Site visit to Moscow! What a cool and dynamic place!
  • MTB Worlds in Canberra, Australia. It is one of the most difficult events to manage, but when you work with such cool athletes and staff, it is an unbelievable experience.
  • Road Worlds in Switzerland, well the Italian part of Switzerland! Swiss organization with Italian food and wine. Watching Kristin Armstrong win AGAIN and Tom Zirbel nearly medal in his first Road World Championships was incredible.
  • Having my good friend Todd McKean visit and ride with us in Mallorca from China. Without Todd, Beijing would have been too hard!
