EURO CHAMPS: PREPARATION
As the velodrome events at Pan Am Games wrapping up, trackies across the pond are preparing for the European Championships in Apeldoorn. This is the first major international event in Europe and the start of the last season before the Summer Olympics. The racing will be fierce as riders fight for those Olympic qualification points to make it to London 2012. European Champs start tomorrow at the Omnisport Velodrome. Check out a write-up from the British perspective and some more photos at British Cycling.
