|Wa hooo - I took first! So excited!|
Kristine took 1st for Womens Cat 1, Jen took 1st for Women's Cat 2 and Claire took 2nd for Women's Cat 1 race!
The Course: The course came out to just under 7 mile laps with lots of fast, smooth, swoopy singletrack. There was 1000′ of elevation gain per lap, but not really any long killer climbs, it was a great blend of fast flow with a little tech here and there.
Love it! I raced 2 laps for Cat 2 women, and Claire & Kristine competed in Cat 1 Women (3laps)
My new sic bike was top dog!
So happy to finally race my Specialized Rumor - she was wicked fast on flat flowy sections and bomber through the steep techiqual sections. I LOVE HER!
Seriously - the Rumor is really blowing my mind. Why?
1. The Command Post - So rad, it was awesome to have my seat drop down and get my butt way back on the descents. I really had so much more control on the downhill and I gain a huge lead over the other ladies on the first lap.
2. This bike is light! One of my fears about racing on a full suspension was weight. But the Rumor is so really light - I don't know how they did it....but it is!
3. Control! I felt like I had so much more control of this bike - after my Geometry Body Fit - this bike is like putting on a glove. It just fits me perfect and I feel like I am in more control. This actually leads me to racing with more safety too. And as a mom and getting older (38 yrs) I don't want to get injured.
What a great birthday weekend!
Me on the podium - Yeah!
