Snelling Road Race

Beth and Susannah met up for this early season event held near Snelling, Ca last weekend. This would be the ladies first race together and they were up against an entire Tibco/To the Top Women's Professional Cycling Team not to mention numerous other NorCal strong-women. Despite other teams having 4-6 riders, Beth and Susannah were active during the entire race, testing their fitness. Both escaped into early breaks with lots of potential, but Tibco had full control and they waited until 1.5 laps to go before getting Erinne Willock solo off the front for the eventual win. With no other teams willing to chase, it was obvious that Tibco would also be setting up a leadout train for the sprint. Susannah attacked  just before 1km mark, and the pack reshuffled a bit and Beth looked to be in good position amidst the Tibco riders. Unfortunately, the final sprint didn't end as planned and both Beth and Susannah ended up just out of the top-10. Not to worry, the girls knew it was just a warm-up for this weekends Merco Stage Race!
