Jeremy Powers Returns with Behind THE Barriers, Season 3 Episode 2: USGP Planet Bike Cup
Episode 2 of Behind THE Barriers’ third season returns to Madison, Wisconsin, for the second day of the US Gran Prix of Cyclocross. After winning on day one (as seen in Episode 1), Jeremy is out for a repeat victory. Before the gun, Jeremy stops in to chat with the guys from Behind THE Beeriers, a local Behind THE Barriers parody, as well as checks out the finer points of the bacon feed. After experiencing some mechanical trouble in the race – thanks to an unruly cordless inflator – hopes of that repeat go up the road in the form of Swiss Mountain Bike World Championhips silver medalist Lukas Flückiger. Jeremy continues to fight, however, and manages to ride his way back onto the podium to complete a highly successful weekend. After the race, it’s off to sign autographs and upstage a man wearing a penguin suit. When the dust has settled, Jeremy takes a moment to talk to the young man from Switzerland about a wide range of things, including the quality of Swiss roads, and how Lukas and he will never quite see eye to eye about Jeremy’s favorite country in the world: Belgium.
