Team Bikeparts.com Pro, Colin Osborn, has been in Europe the past month trying out the dirt!  Here is the following write up from USA Cycling about the young Americans kicking butt!

Development mountain bikers fare well in Europe

The USA Cycling National Development Mountain Bike Team grabbed both first and second place at the Wittnauer mountain bike race in Germany on May 10. U.S. team member Tad Elliott (Durango, Colo.) earned a victory in the local mountain bike race, while his teammate Robbie Squire (Sandy, Utah) grabbed second and Ethan Gilmour (Ludlow, Vt.) finished ninth.

The National Development team members also recently contested the Racer Bikes Cup/Swiss National Series #3 in Solothurn, Switzerland where Elliott finished 27th and Squire 30th in the top-level European race series.

Racing alongside the USA Cycling National Development Mountain Bike Team members was Mitchell Hoke (Colorado Springs, Colo.), Tristan Cowie(Brevard, N.C.), Kevin Cane (Dillon, Colo.), Stephan Ettinger (Cashmere, Wash.), Trevor Downing (Durango, Colo.) and Colin Osborn (Durango, Colo.). These six U23 cross country racers are experiencing European mountain bike racing for the first time as a part of the first of three USA Cycling European Mountain Bike Development Race Camps scheduled for this summer.

The six camp participants are set to contest the following upcoming races:

May 17-Heubach Budesliga XCO, Germany
May 23-Buhlertaler Hill Climb, Germany
