It was a great women's field with a dozen girls. The gun went off and up the hill we went. I went my pace and got some saddle time in. Selene and Laura were pushing each other hard and had a great race with Selene winning on her new bike that as a size small fits two water bottles.
Laura is on the fast track to racing success this year.
I finished five laps and ended up in third, which was good enough for the cool El Salvadorian machete prize. In the words of Cory Rimmer "Tough day at the races. Skills kept me in the race and my legs took me out. Lots of training to be had." My skills were remarkably good. Maybe all the cross country skiing had a positive effect on my mtb skills? I also really like the Scalpel and my Kenda Nevegals, they rock on the rocks!
TSEpic again but its hard to know if two months is enough time to be ready for a 7 day stage race.
Zach puts on nice races and feeds us great afterwards.
