Team USA Dominates Down Unda'
Now that we are well into 2020 - an Olympic year, the countdown toward Tokyo has ticked down into the mere four months away mark.

According to UCI’s country points, Team USA is currently qualified to take three women and two men to the Tokyo games this summer - on July 30-31st.

The UCI World Cup recently kicked off with their first two WC’s in Australia, and Team USA came out swingin’! On day one, our Rio silver medalist Alise Willoughby lined up in the main against two Aussies (Sakakibara and Reynolds), two Frenchies (Etienne & Valentino), two Dutchies (Smulders and Baauw) and one Colombian (two-time gold medalist Pajon). As you’d expect, the Aussie crowd was stoked to see the Willoughby name nabbing the holeshot. The Beast held off a hard charge by Saya Sakakibara to get her first World Cup win of 2020. On Day two, Alise was joined by fellow teammate Felicia Stancil on the podium, giving Team USA a sweet 1-2 punch.
