A Race Filled Weekend!

On Saturday, July 25, 2009, Dark Horse Racing staged two 4-person teams at the start line of the Tree Farm Relay event. After a mixed bag of rain, mud, sunshine and tacky trail, the ladies of Dark Horse Racing came out 1-2 on the podium in the Sport Women Category.

As co-sponsors of this fundraiser for the MMBA, after our laps, we helped out with other volunteer tasks. Thanks to our awesome sponsor Dark Horse Brewery for donating a keg of IPA to help refuel the racers after their laps!

The next day, Jen, Gabby and Melissa headed to Stony Creek for the Tailwind USAC Time Trial with similarly excellent results:

Sport Women 25-39:

1st Place: Gabby Bruno
2nd Place: Jen Dolenga

Expert/Elite Women:

4th Place: Melissa Fritz

It was a fun-filled weekend of team camraderie and great racing.

More pictures to come soon!

Dark Horse Reunion!

Gabby, Andrea, Lynda, former Dark Horse Girl Erin (who will always be a Dark Horse girl to us), and future Dark Horse Girl Jackie met up at Maybury recently for a group ride. The trail was in perfect shape and just like old times, we chased Erin around for some singletrack fun! We all adjourned to Deadwood for some important refueling and catching up after!

I guess training rides CAN be fun!!!
