NC.Com Crit #14 and Podiums

Amanda (with Anna and Porter), Sandra, and me

Tonight's race was the last in the series, and there was a huge field of 18 women tonight! In that big field, 7 were from SVMIC, 4 of us were from Team Belladium, 4 were from Cumberland Transit, 2 were unattached, and 1 was from Team Bikers Choice. What a great turnout!

Anna, Valerie, Cali, and I tried to make it exciting. We were a little more aggressive than we had been, and that resulted in Anna getting into a 3-man break mid-way through the race. Shortly thereafter, Cali and Jess went for a prime, got far enough away from the rest of us in the field, and bridged up to Anna (who was with Marsha and Kathy). So the 5 of them duked it out for the win, and another 7 of us behind them got to have our own little race and sprint. I had a blast this season; I love racing. Plus, thanks to Valerie's and Cali's (and others', but theirs is the most notable) hard work, I represented Team Belladium on the overall omnium podium. Hooray!

Stats: 25:07, 9.23 miles, 22.1 mph (28.1 max), 177 HR (197 max)
