Impressions on Coming to America to Crit by Jen Darmody of Australia and Ali Sheehan of the UK

Chasing your dreams in bike racing isn't easy. Having to travel to do so makes it even harder. But what if you have to travel across oceans in pursuit of your ambitions? Our guests this week, Jen Darmody (Sydney Uni Staminade) and Ali Sheehan (Bianchi Dama Cycling Team) are first timers to the American crit racing scene. Guest riding for Butcher Box Racing, they've come to the United States to test themselves against the best crit racers in the world at some of this country's most challenging criteriums, and they are loving every second of it. We sat down and tried to figure out why they did it and what they are learning from it.
