A Day of Racing & Remembering

Jen & Sheri headed to Ft. Custer for the Tailwinds USAC Time Trial on June 12. Always one of our favorite races, Jen took 2nd place in Sport Women 19-29 and Sheri raced to 3rd place in Sport Women 40+! They also used the opportunity of being on the west side of the state for a stop at the Mothership.....Dark Horse Brewery! Lucky Girls!!!!!

The rest of us took part in a memorial ride closer to home honoring Carlos Ramirez, one of the areas most enthusiastic, colorful and inspirational riders and trail builders who succumbed to cancer a couple of years ago. We got to ride the trail backwards and dedicated a bench to Carlos' memory. RIP Carlos, your love of MTBing lives on in all of us!

A Podium Finish at Hanson Hills XC, June 5, 2011

Despite a slow leaking flat on her last lap, Janet Grimm raced to a 3rd place finish in Sport Women 40+ at the Hanson Hills XC Race, part of the MMBA CPS Series this weekend. According to Janet, she knew she had a slow leak at the start of Lap #2, but was able to ride until right before the finish when she was forced to run her bike across the finish line! Way to hang in there, Janet!
