One weekend, two races, two medals!

On Saturday, October 17, five Dark Horse girls lined up at the start of the Peak 2 Peak XC Mountain Bike race at Crystal Mountain ski resort for what is turning out to be a fall classic race and great tuneup for Iceman. The weather was perfect, fall colors were amazing, and the course was in great shape. Melissa took 3rd place in a fast and strong field of Sport Women 15-44 and Alicia was not far behind in 6th place. In the expert women class, Janet took 4th! Way to go ladies!!!

After the race and awards, we hung out with former Dark Horse girl Erin and the team founder Susan, trying to stay warm with some Dark Horse liquid refreshments and fun comraderie!

Closer to home, Jen raced to 2nd place at the Lower Huron Cyclocross race sponsored by Tailwinds. Way to go Jen!

Jen Kicks off Cyclocross Season with a WIN!

Jen headed out to the Tailwinds Munson Park NIGHTTIME Cyclocross Race in Monroe, Michigan on October 3 and came away with an impressive 1st place finish over 6 other women! Jen was the only woman to do 5 laps, staying ahead of the men and avoiding getting lapped. Keep up the good work, Jen!
