Just found out that USA Cycling dissed me on the MTB worlds team. WTF? I guess they are only taking the guys who are on the Olympic long team, and even though I beat 3-4 out of the 6 riders, maybe even 5, at all the races we have competed in this year, I am deemed "not good enough" for a top 10 placing, and apparently the other guys are. No disrespect to the other riders though. They are all great riders and deserve to go, but I dont feel like it was necessary for USA Cyling to name only 6 riders to the team when there are 7 spots at worlds for the elite men. Its not like I am taking anything away from anyone else. i just want a chance. Apparently that is too much to ask for. Now all the training and building up I have been doing for worlds is a bust. I guess all I can do now is roll my frustrations into a ball and throw it as hard as I can at Nationals and the Candian world cup rounds. I am bummed.
