Alexey Vermeulen Is Confident He Can Contest US Pro Road Nationals Despite Not Racing Road
Alexey Vermeulen is fired up for this year's US pro national championships. After a few years of racing in the WorldTour, Vermeulen finds himself stateside competing in gravel events with Jukebox Cycling. Despite the lack of road racing in his current program, the 27 year old knows what it takes to win on the Knoxville course, and he is confident he can contest the race three weeks after the 200-mile Garmin UNBOUND Gravel. His performance at this year's Belgian Waffle Ride in San Diego should solidify Vermeulen as a top favorite this weekend.
