UCI Worlds: Libby Hill Loves USA Cycling

It's Sunday night at UCI Worlds in Richmond and our final night in Richmond. The plan was to blog every evening about our adventures and I made it! I'm also tweeting, so follow me @GiroJenny for real-time updates.

If you don't have time to read, here's a quick recap of Day 9.

Food: VIP House, Capital Ale House
Bike: None, didn't want to miss any of the men's race which started at 9a and finished just before 4p.
Races: Elite Men Road Race
Picks for Tomorrow:  None
Best Moment: USA Cycling representing in the breaks and around the world! What a great way to finish up an amazing week of racing.
Not the Best Moment: Walking a long way to Sub Rosa Bakery to learn wait was over 45 minutes (for take-out?). We weren't about to miss a single lap, so we passed it up.
Strangest Moment: After 10 days in the hotel room, I noticed the painting above our toilet for the 1st time. As if my brain knows it can focus on something over than cycling now that UCI Worlds 2015 is over.
Best Cycling Encounter: Spending another day at USA Cycling and with Davis and Connie.
