As far as a brief ITT race report from the women’s side: I was super excited about finally meeting so many of the folks on the team, and it was a surprisingly jovial get together for being 7am! Maybe a bit too jovial, since it seemed that many of us mistimed or cut our warmups too short (ooops) – something to plan better for next time.
With my start time being right before Kristie, I had to keep an eye on her in case her inner Jens Voigt got the better of her and she went too hard before her debut in the Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic. “Kristie, I swear, don’t you dare pass me!” (She didn’t)
Cat 4 Women report: Congrats to Sandy Sierakowski who got 1ST PLACE in the women’s cat 4 with a blistering sub 20 min time, Samantha Fox who got 2nd place, Sam Orskog in 7th, Phoebe right behind in 8th, Modesta Paris in top 10 !!!, and Lauren Buechner who DOUBLED for 13th in W4 and 4th in W-masters 35+.
