Good morning and welcome to the weekend my friends. I hope everyone enjoyed the long holiday weekend and clocked in many miles on the bike.
The weather has turned absolutely perfect with cool mornings and warm afternoons; perfect for getting in the mode of base training miles. But before that starts the Masters' Nationals races must finish in Bend,Oregon. So far this week our local riders have been collecting a boat load of heavy medal. The B4T9 ladies Jill Gass and Maryann Levenson have won in both Time Trial and Tandem Time Trial, Avalon Jenkins is racing well and Kelly Mclaughlin has maintained her space in the top half--she has done well racing this year and wasn't even riding two years ago!!! Strong woman and we are so proud of her as a teammate and as it shows to the success of our mission to get women not only to ride, but to enjoy the occasional race too. Patricia Baker continues to podium in the 70+ age group ; she is a true inspiration and a wonderful competitor. Rebecca Rusch has entered the road racing scene from the world of endurance mountain biking and she is doing really well, taking the podium and having lots of fun too. Lisa Campbell, local girl was 1st in the Time Trial and The Road Race, Lisa is one of the strongest riders in our area and we are so happy for her; she puts in the work and deserves it! Reagan "Sporty Spice" is also racing at Nationals, she races for DudeGirl and we enjoy seeing her at all the races. Our very own Olympian Dotsie Bausch is at the Nationals too... so wonderful to have her so accessible and she is incredibly FUN. Also from the neighborhood the Breakaway from Cancer Masters team: (Robb Mesecher & friends) are at Nationals taking their share of medals and racing REALLY HARD. We all know what drives their mission and they certainly put that same passion into the pedals....#fightcancersupportcycling
