Sleepyhole and Dismal Dash

While our NC crew got rained out, the sky stayed clear enough in Virginia for some great local racing this weekend...

Sleepyhole Crit- Women's open race and our team six women there! Two cat 4 riders, two cat 3 riders, and 2 elite riders. Seems like a wreck happened in every race and the women's race was no exception (hope you ladies get healed up quickly). Lot's attempts for breaks were made but none stuck. In the end it was a group sprint, and although we tried to get organized it was a little chaotic when Jen (Velocita) jumped for a very early and long sprint. It ended up working out for her because she held it to the line and sent everyone else scrambling. Christine (ABRT) got 2nd and our own Amanda E. got 3rd overall and 1st in her category. Leslie was close behind for 4th overall. Other notable results for our team include our category 4 riders Julie H. and Morgan S. going 1,2 in the cat 4 division (and both placing top 10 overall), and our cat 3 junior Mallory had a great race and finished strong with the pack and 4th withing her category.

Amanda, Morgan, Avanell
Dismal Dash TT-The weather was dismal as always, although not so cold this year as it has been in the past. Amanda E. took 1st place in the women's 1,2,3 category, Brittany (Velocita) placed 2nd, and Ava placed 3rd. In the category 4 race the team was also victorious thanks to a great tt effort by Morgan who won 1st in her category!!

Next race: Jefferson Cup!!
