It sounds like the Colavita guys are having a great start to the year! Lots of racing and good results! It’s been a great year for the women of Colavita as well! Courtney gave a great effort at Gila despite being ill and I hope all the other women are getting in some great training and riding as well! My race season has been full of fun, learning and growing as a rider! My race results have been pretty good, but of course always wish I could do better! It would also be great if more women came out for local and regional races!
Tucson Bicycle Classic – Women’s Pro 1-2
Learned lots and had fun!
TT 22nd – went out way too hard 🙂
RR 9th – 30 second penalty for not signing in – learning experience Circuit Race – got in a break away with Rebecca Much which was AWESOME and we had a good time, but eventually we got caught. I also had my head in VeloNews from the finish of the circuit race! That was pretty cool!
GC – 21st – I learned how important a good TT is for a stage race!
Mad Cow Classic – Grand Junction, CO – Women’s Open
TT – 1st – went out way too hard again! I think I have learned that lesson now!
Crit – 1st – race was at the motor speedway! So much fun! I gained some confidence and worked on cornering!
Road Race – DNF – was in 1st (broke away) when I came upon my boyfriend who had crashed and ended up with a skull, neck and back fracture. 😦 He is healing well, but will be braced for 3 months! Spent the week at the hospital in Grand Junction and have been trying to back in the swing of things since!
Fort Lewis Squawker – Durango, CO – Women’s Open
Crit – 2nd – Feeling much better on the cornering RR – 1st – They let us start with the men so it was a great workout and learing experience.
Now I am training for Iron Horse! Was up in the passes last week-end! Freezing 23 degrees at Red Mountain Pass!
I also just ordered a new Jamis TT bike! Maybe that will help my TT (This time I am going to get it fit!)
I hope everyone’s season continues to be FUN, REWARDING and SAFE!
