The Continental cup is just over by 24 hours. We are in Madrid on our way home, back to San Francisco.
My first time on the African continent and first time in Morocco. We will be back.
I enjoyed, as I have always done, the competitions. I was saddened by the lack of a crowd for such fine races and events.

I believe that we have to make some real decisions in our sport. Is it better to have too many events, some that are fantastic and some that are, much less?
How do we really grow the sport?
We need to learn from Marrakech and events that, well meaning, sometimes, just do not work.
In Split, in 2010, there were 25,000 fans. In 2014, there were, perhaps several thousand over the two days.
