Wente Crit Race Report
April 24, 2006 · Print This Article
We had Monica, Liz B, Soni and I out there in a field of 35-40 riders. These gals are my heroes- they raced hard on Saturday, raced in the Cat 1,2,3 race earlier, then came out and worked for Soni and I.
We did a pretty good job sticking together, and whenever I found myself sliding back in the field, there was Liz or Monica ready to pull me back up to the front. Sonny and I tried to watch out for each other and stay out of the nasty wind as much as possible.
This was a sketchy course, lots of room for crazy moves and crashes happening in all of the races throughout the day. With about 5 laps to go, Monica took a monster pull up to the front, and kept Soni and I out of the dangerous pack.
Monica deserves a medal for her hard work- she kept us at the front all the way to the bell lap, and into the second to last turn. It was incredible! We had a beautiful bella train going round and round. I swear I had this sh*t eating grin on my face the whole time.
I was able to catch a good wheel going into the last corner sitting in third position. I sprinted waay early, and was glad that I hit the line when I did…. It was a fun win, and I am so happy to have teammates like these gals.
