After the 12 mile prologue, I was in 7th place for the day. No one ever really wants to be 7th place, but I did the best I could and I was ok with it. It wasn’t a surprise. I knew I wasn’t “killing it” out there. I simply hoped that things would be better the next day, and I was happy to be racing with such a great women’s field.

The presentation that night was fun! They had a photo slide show and a briefing on the next day. I’m so excited to be at this

Here are a couple videos from Cycling Dirt, who has FANTASTIC coverage of the event. I can’t get iframe embed code to work with wordpress, so click the image and it’ll go to the video.
