A cold but clear day greeted racers to the second of the Triangle Velo Winter Criterium Races. SWS member Danielle Baker raced the Women’s 1/2/3 , Jill Caputi and Kristin Allyne raced the Women’s 4; all raced together but were scored separately.
Jill threw down a couple of extremely strong attacks at the beginning of the 40 minute race. Danielle worked to push the pace when the field wouldn’t break up, and blocked when Kristin attacked. Kristin got away for the second series race to win the prime. When an attack was lodged with two laps to go in the race, Kristin bridged the gap from the pack to catch, then pass, for the overall race and Cat 4 win.
Great start to the season with two team wins! A diverse ability of talents promise to make for interesting strategy work, and unleash multiple threats for the podium.
Results: Women 1/2/3- Danielle Baker 2nd; Women 4: Kristin Allyne 1st, Jill Caputi 5th
