April 3rd- Singer Training Race
First official training race of the season at Kirkwood Industrial Park! We had 10 women ( Jackie, Marsha, Jennifer, Angela, Elizabeth, Tami, Holly, Karen, Heather & Tiffany) We had a nice little training clinic prior to the race to help the newer racers become adjusted to riding in a group and how to paceline (thanks to Andrew for taking the time to explain the skills as Jackie and I demonstrated). After we were all warmed up, and received the intro race talk, the women started with the B men's group and stayed together for the first several laps to give everyone a nice feel of what it's like to ride and paceline with a good size group. Midway through the race, Jackie and Marsha decided to test their legs (and the B men) and had a fun time racing to the finish where Jackie took the win for the women (and 3rd place among the men!) Many thanks to Tami Lewis who stayed with the newer riders to give them some more racing tips! Hope to see you all at the Thursday night Time trials as well!
