Bella’s Clean up at Watkins Glen Duathlon
June 6, 2008 · Print This Article
Two of our own bella’s faired well in the downpour at the Watkins
Glen race track "Fly by Night dual at the Glen". Sue Atwood quietly snuk out of her house without Dave, or any other Bellas even noticing and entered this crazy run, ride, run, ride, run race. Little did she know, Kira and I went there to cheer and spotted her immediately and became her loudest fans out there. She just kept shaking her head everytime she went by but she did us proud. Even steven with the truck drivin’ attitude. Watch out cause i’ll plow you down if you get in my way. She brought home a trophy and check out the photo – she looks strong! I’m just so proud.
Then there was Melissa, our new Bella this year who is on her third race of her first season. She and her runner Delaney were the top womens relay team and they smoked the course. I loaned my TT helmet to Melissa and she looked like a screaming silver bullet out there on the race track. Her TT’s are starting to pay off! Brought a tear to my eye to see our bella’s lookin’ so good out there on a real race track.
Wish you all could have seen them. I guess the first bike portion was rather nerve racking with the wet track. The race course is quite turny and hilly and was really challenging for 3 laps. The sun did try to come out and did dry up the track a bit so the riders seemed to be having a much better time the second leg. Well done bella’s.
