We had 10 women today at Guanella Pass Hill Climb, with over 40 women showing up in the Cat 4 field. To boot, we landed on the podium today twice! Great race, from Noodles perspective.
The race up Guanella Pass this morning was a beautiful, fun race and great chance for riders to put their climbing legs, and lungs to the test. For a few Naked Cat 4’s this was their first hill climb race ever. The morning started out brisk but sunny with racers setting up trainers, finishing up coffee, and applying the oh so important sunscreen. It was quickly discovered that Sharon Madison and I were both sporting bright and colorful team-spirited nail polish– probably the best discovery of the morning, second only to finding out I was parked close to the port-a-potty’s. The day=off to a good start.
