A bunch of good looking racers: Zac, old timer Gail, young'un Lukas, Meika, brave A group racer Chris, newcomer Ryan, and AVRA coach Alex.
Coach Alex provided sage advice, a calming influence, and incredible skills . . . including building a tent and tarp compound for every Juventi that would rival the most glamorous "glamping" accommodations.
Of note - Meika jumped into racing after next to no training, as she had been prepping for her bar exams, and U17 Chris raced with the super fast A group (including Olympic star Tara Whitten) throwing down several best times in his events.
Gail bowed out of the omnium to focus on completing a smoking hot pursuit (mission accomplished); Zach continued his breakthrough season as a super tough competitor in the A group (just look at the seasoned and very fast men he beat in the omnium!)
Not in the photo is Peter who continued his decades long streak of making his competitors hurt in the endurance events. Also not pictured are super-Dads Aaron and Ralf who were quick to help everyone in many ways.
