PA state road race report

Pennsylvania State Road Race Championship

Patty and Amanda W. went to Chesco County for the Pennsylvania State Championship Road Race today. It was 40 miles of hot, fast racing. Lots of action from attacks throughout the race. By the 3rd of three laps there were only about 12 riders left in the pack. After the last turn Patty went for it, with about 1k to go she punched it up the climb. There was about 500 meters to the line at the top of the climb, when Dana Walton (team Alliance Environmental), snuck past for the win right before the finish. Patty held on to 2nd after a great race and Amanda finished in the front pack as well with 9th.

Next Race = Iron Hill Twilight, this Saturday night in downtown  West Chester, PA.
