The Exergy Tour begins today in Boise, Idaho. It is a five-day stage race featuring 16 of the best women's cycling teams in the world.
For many international racers, this is the last race on the UCI calendar before the Olympic points cut-off date and the results here will determine Olympic qualification. For others, the coveted goal is a team win.
For the women of Team Colavita, Exergy marks our third race together and we're looking forward to testing our mettle against the best. For myself, one great outing might earn me enough qualification points to get St. Kitts & Nevis its first Olympic cycling berth. The pressure is on Boise, and Team Coalvita is ready to roll.
The prologue starts place at 6:30 p.m. local time, so click here to follow the action live.
