Durango’s Christopher Blevins, Sepp Kuss gain Olympic long team selection

Simmons misses long team, still has chance to prove self
Sepp Kuss began to show the world his climbing prowess in 2018 with a win at the Tour of Utah. Two years later, the Durango road cyclist is on the long team for USA Cycling selection to the 2021 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Slapping hands with spectators on his way to a Stage 15 victory at the 2019 Spanish Vuelta, Durango’s Sepp Kuss flashed a smile while earning his first stage victory at a Grand Tour event.
Durango’s Quinn Simmons had a strong ride despite not feeling like he had his best en route to a fourth-place finish at the UCI Road World Championships in the junior men’s individual time trial. He would go on to win the world title in the road race and announce that he had signed a WorldTour team contract with Trek-Segafredo.
