The Spokeswomen ladies found themselves again in top 10 and podium finishes over the weekend.
Saturday’s road race went off despite the near-frigid temperature (that may be a slight exaggeration). Allie, Danielle, Kristin, and Sarah G held strong for the first brutal lap of hills, but an uncooperative bike ended Allie’s day early. The field shattered and finished tattered, with Sarah G sprinting for 3rd, Kristin a strong 6th after much time at the front, and Danielle 7th in the cat 3 field.
Sunday’s criterium was located in downtown Durham. The SWS who weren’t in kits sat happily at FullSteam Brewery to spectate the race and
goad cheer on racers. The women’s field was fast but stayed together. Sarah G sprinted for 3rd, Kristin 7th and Danielle 10th.
We would like to give a shoutout to a few sponsors who got us through the weekend- Crawford Service Course brought the van, tools, and snacks and kept everyone together- ParCycles for the parts – and Sportique for the amazing chamois cream.
