Yesterday was the Coyote Creek circuit race in San Jose. 3 of our Cat 4 girls lined up in the open-category field. The Velo Bellas were there in force and clearly intended to win the race (which they did for the W1/2/3 portion).
I'm proud to say that our girls nearly swept the Cat 4 podium - Jen 1st, Karena 2nd, and Evan 4th. Go team! We celebrated at a pool partay afterwards.
I sort of wish I'd joined them. To be honest, I was afraid of the open category race after my last experience with that. And, I promised myself a good break from racing. However, the group ride my coach sent me on was so painful and so early that racing wouldn't have been any more painful or any more frustrating.
