Women’s C Challenge!!

November 22, 2005 · Print This Article

What a huge success the Cat C Challenge was. We had 40 women on the line for the start of the race. I’m hoping many of you return for more. Got this swell email from Amy about it:

“Awesome race on Saturday! Congratulations for putting on a first class event!

Here is a picture of Liz with her new LEMOND! I was so thrilled that she won the bike. If the bike shop hoped to get more women interested in cross racing they certainly suceeded. Liz, Denise, Heidi and I all talked each other into doing the race totally at the last minute. I hadn’t been on my mountain bike in over six years and Liz borrowed a mountain bike that was way too big just the night before the race. We were all motivated by the chance to win a bike but had such a blast we will be back for more cross action soon! I am in for next years cross season for sure. Now I just have to find a cross bike for myself!”

Huge thank you to Bicycle Trip and WildDingo.com for their support of women’s racing.
