Vet's Cross Results
Borrowed a geared bike in the morning (thanks Rob and Barb!) and hurried to Leavenworth to do the women's open. Ended up second to Catherine Wahlberg who kicked my butt on the hills and who also played the pavement much better. Nothing like experience, but thankfully she shared a little of her knowledge after the race. I now know a lot more about what to look for in a tire for those types of conditions. Thank you Catherine! Also got to see friends Jennifer and Michelle. Everyone was disppointed more women weren't out for the race, but Rob says women do triathalons instead. So, hmm. How do we get more women racing bikes? If equal money won't do it, what will?
