Whole Athlete-Specialized Juniors Head to Europe to Take on World-Cup Racing

Standout Whole Athlete-Specialized juniors Keegan Swenson and Max Houtzager are taking the leap across the pond to race with the world's best. Swenson and Houtzager join a small number of elite US Juniors under USA Cycling's National Race Camp to compete in the Offenburg World Cup in Germany next weekend and the Swisspower Cup race in Granichen, Switzerland June 5th.

This trip marks the first foray into European racing for Swenson and Houtzager and should provide them with invaluable experience at the highest level of the sport. Swenson has shown he's ready to take on the next level after having won every ProXCT junior event entered this Spring and six wins to date. Houtzager has also had a strong Spring campaign, with two wins and multiple podium placings, and the Offenburg race will be his second World Cup race experience after competing at the Windham, NY event last year.
