U.S. Olympic team will go on road course for its first time on the road
The U.K.’s Olympic team has a plan: Take the day to explore the world, and if you find something you like, get the hell out.
That is the plan for the U.s.
Olympic women’s road team, which will return to its home turf next month for the Rio Games in August after a four-year absence.
In preparation for the trip, the U-20s have already mapped out their course, which includes a stretch of paved roads and a stretch with a series of gravel loops.
“We have our road course and we’ve mapped out the gravel loops and the paved roads,” U. S. Under-20 head coach Jill Ellis said.
She added: “It’s going to be fun.
We are going to do a little bit of the world out here.”
Ellis and her U-19 squad will be joined by five other American and five British members of the team, who will travel on the same road trip as the Utes and Americans, which was the first time the U17s and U20s competed together at the Olympic Games in Beijing in 2008.
The U. U-21s will also visit England for the first leg of the London Olympics in August.
Ellison said that after their four-day road trip, each U. of A. member will have two weeks off.
She said the team will use the two weeks to “work on some things,” including some off-season conditioning, before returning to London for the final leg of their tour.
The U-18s will arrive in London on June 12, which is when they will face the first team from Australia.
While there, Ellis and the U20 and U-17 women will visit the Umlaut, where they will get to see how the British-made road-track bike works.
Ellis said the U23s will then visit the Olympic Stadium, where the U18s and the Olympic teams will train.
As for the women, Ellis said she and her team are “not sure” whether they will compete at the Olympics.
A spokesperson for the British team, Sarah Kavanagh, declined to comment on the status of its Olympic preparations.
Ellis said she hoped that the team would have “some fun” before returning home to England.
