Two Podium Spots at the Ruby USAC XC Race 6/14

Congrats to Jen and Beth Ann who both grabbed podium spots at the Ruby Campground XC race last weekend! That course is always fun, and the river crossings make for some entertaining spectating!

Jen raced to 1st Place in Sport Women 25-39 and Beth Ann, the only female singlespeeder in her class, edged by some guys to snag 5th place in Sport/Beginner Singlespeed.

Way to go, Ladies!!!

USAC Brighton Stage Race 5/30 & 5/31

3 Dark Horse Girls headed to Brighton Recreation Area the weekend of 5/30 and 5/31 for the USAC Stage Race. The format consisted of a Time Trial and Short Track race on Saturday, and a classic Cross Country race on Sunday. Lowest combined time determined placings. The weather was great, and some of our teammies currently on the injured reserve list showed up to cheer us on!!!
