I’m very happy we won a medal, it was the greatest team accomplishment I have ever experienced, and on top of that Simon, the veteran of the team was able to cherish a well deserved medal after many years competing at the world trophy, so that was the icing on the cake for me. The trip was amazing as well, and the party for the race, More >

Post-WMRT Thoughts from Simon Gutierrez

I still have not found the words to describe the feeling Ihad when a race timing official peeked his head out of thetiming trailer at the finish line, and gave us the thumbs upand said” US men, bronze medal”

A degree of disbelief ? Wanting to believe but notwanting to get too excited for fear of the possibility of anerror? But then again, as we finished the team was greeted by Ricky and Joe,they had been looking out for the team finishes and were saying….WE DID IT !

What an amazing feeling, after 4-5 years of believing thatthe US men could medal. More >
