Well these races certainly did NOT live up to their name!!
It was great to see such a large turnout in the women’s races, and even better to jump off the line with a field of stiff competition in a home race.
Danielle, Jill, and Sarah G. brought the pain to the Women’s ¾ race. Danielle turned herself inside out for her teammates and sacrificed her last match in an end of race attack. Sarah G. sprinted in for 3rd, even after bridging a sizable gap and putting in much time at the front.
Danielle, Sarah G. and Allie then jumped into the Women’s Open. The pack split wide open early on, and even so the pace remained high. Sarah G. held on for a 5th place finish and Allie came in 7th after a mechanical and CX style sprint across the course to reach the pit in time for a free lap.
While the day’s races were painful and tough, at least we can say our tushies were happy and enjoying their Sportique Century Femme Chamois Cream. 🙂 We are so excited to try more of their products!
