New York State Time Trial Championship- Rome, NY August 30, 2015

What a great way to celebrate the end of the road racing season with a state championship!
Over 110 cyclists were registered for the Time trial championship with great weather in store!

Eight, yes (8) Mission in Motion Women came out to compete in various categories and age groups! It was great to see so many of our uniforms in one place!

The cat 1-2-3 women, and Masters 40+ & 45+ rode the 40km course and were treated to an awesome stating ramp built by members of the Mohawk Valley Bicycle Club, for a long time trial, there were some stretches of steady climbing that many of us commented were hard heading into the wind.  The Cat 4 women, and Masters 50+, 55+ were treated to a fast 20km course, leaving them looking perfectly beautiful after their race :)  But, of course Kathleen, Elizabeth and Leah always look perfect no matter how hard they ride!

Congratulations to every member of our team!  Each of us earned a medal and a spot on the podium!
