Bicycles Plus Early Bird Criterium - WIN!

Elizabeth Newell - 1st

She did it again! Beth scored another win for Fremont Bank Cycling Team over the weekend and we all know she is just getting started. Beth was among a strong group of women, many racing solo, that traveled to Folsom, Ca for the early season criterium. Touchstone Climbing had a strong team that started the racing off with some coordinated attacks - but with solo riders like Mary Maroon, Ruth Winder, and Beth nothing was able to stay away as the group continually chased down any break away attempts. In the final lap, Maroon and Winder had a slight gap on the field, but Beth's patience payed off and once the duo was in striking distance Beth closed the gap and then attacked again, jumping out of the final turn and unleashing her incredible sprint for another victory. Congrats on another win! Next up - the women will be racing in the Central Valley over the next few weekends.
