With the U.S. Cyclocross Nationals coming up in mid-December, those riders aspiring to strong performance at the world championships in late January are presented with a scheduling problem:  How to gain or hold form with no racing for six weeks and then racing in the biggest race of one’s life at the end of that six weeks.

Having direct experience with this dilemma as a USA team member from 1993-1996, Geoff Proctor spent time researching the prospects of a first EuroCrossCamp with Noel Dejonckheere while in Belgium during the summer of 2003. The idea came to fruition that Christmas 2003 with the first Camp. Since then, EuroCrossCamp has often served as a starting point for international experience for many riders and this year will be no different.
