Roanoke wet Roanoke

Roanoke Race Weekend
Special thanks to Starlight for promoting a great race weekend

Julie H. sprinting for the line 13th overall, 2nd place for cat 4's
Roanoke Twilight- Women's open on a fun and challenging downtown crit course with lots of corners and a few ups and downs. This year the slick course really split things up for the start, with the field breaking to pieces by the 3rd lap. The race was loaded with attacks and eventually Emilie Ray (Real Deal Racing and Canadian National Tean) got away with Ali (Velocita).
Morgan riding in solo for 8th overall, and 1st for cat 4's
Emilie later got away from Ali for a solo win, with Ali taking 2nd. Kelly (Velocita) attacked the chase group and got away for 3rd. Julie K. worked very hard to catch the breaks and cover attacks during the race, and finished in the chase group sprinting with Ava, Jen (Velocita) and Kimberly (Affinity). Ava gave a great lead on the last lap and Julie came in 5th overall, with Ava taking 7th overall and 1st for the cat 3's in the race. Morgan got away from the second chase group she was in and soloed the last 3 laps in for 8th overall, and the 1st cat 4 in the race. Other results for the team include: Amanda E. 11th, Julie H. 13th, and Mallory 16th. Great job to all the competitors in a tough race who came out and braved the weather and stuck it out to the end!
