UCI Road Master Worlds - Austria

Americans get 4 medals at Worlds in St. Johaan, Austria. And it seems that most of the success comes from the west.  Idaho, Utah, Colorado,  and California seem to do well.  Perhaps mile-high rides make great rider's!  Can we say the playground makes the player! Look at the success Idaho has with the gals.  

If you race in this part of the world, you can measure your efforts against the men/women of the world, no problem. 

Idaho's Richard Feldman has taken almost all of the tt races in Idaho and backs it up at worlds as he takes a Sliver in men 30-39 tt., and Utah's Ken Louder, Jeff Louder's dad places a very respectful 11th in men 60-64 road with Kenny Fuller, CA taking the gold in men 60-64.

Western USA has some super roads with super climbs to ride.  If you have not had a chance to go west, you might want to check it out.  The fall is a super time of the year and once you get out of town, the roads are very open, very little traffic.
