Last Monday (02), through social media, Sepp Kuss announced that he will be back in his homeland, in Durango, Colorado, United States, and with that, as a way of celebrating the cyclist’s victory in the Vuelta a España, the city announced that it will hold an event at Buckley Parte, on October 19th.
The event will be held by the Durango Devo cycling school, of which Sepp Kuss was once a student. The athlete will open the celebration with a speech, possibly about his achievement and professional career, and will continue with a chat with the public, with questions and answers. In addition, the occasion will feature presentations, a bicycle parade, food and an autograph session.
“Durango Devo is proud of all our alumni and we are certainly proud of Sepp Kuss! We are honored to welcome the Vuelta a España champion and Tour de France stage winner and celebrate his achievements in his hometown. He is a great example of what makes Durango Devo and the Durango cycling community special,” said the statement published on social media by Levi Kurlander, director of the company.
With his victory in the competition, Sepp Kuss became the first American to win the Vuelta a España after many years. In an interview with the local press, the athlete had reported that getting first place in the matches was considered one of the biggest dreams in his career.
“When I woke up I thought I was dreaming, it will take me a long time to get used to it. I don’t know if today is the happiest day of my career, because the success of the Grand Tour is something that is built over multiple stages, but it is certainly one of them”, said the athlete after presenting the awards in the competition.
