This past July, 77 of the world’s finest triathletes came to Geneva for one of the nation’s five Pan American Cups. The streets of Geneva closed down and Seneca Lake was churned to a mighty froth as Olympian Victor Plata and Cooperstown-born Sarah Groff raced to victory, in pursuit of cash dollar and world ranking points. Next July, we’re doing it again.
A month before the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, we’ll host the fastest of the fast in a draft-legal, multi-loop, closed-course dynamo through downtown Geneva. As the only Pan American Cup east of the Mississippi, the Musselman will be an important test event for the U.S. Olympians priming for the Olympics. And as we did last year, we’ll stage the mini-Mussel sprint race Saturday morning and the Pan American Cup in the afternoon, giving all Musselman participants the chance to be roadside as the blur of bicycles stands your hair on end.
Remember, if you miss the Musselman ITU race, you’ll have to journey to Des Moines, San Francisco, Portland, or Oklahoma City to see one.
