Race: Bike Line Spring XC @ Fair Hill
Location: Elkton, MD
Rider(s): Nicole LaGorga and Shannon Grieb
Today's race at Fairhill was the first of the XC category in the MidAtlantic Super Series. Shannon and I pulled into an emptty parking lot this afternoon expecting to race the same course as last summers Fairhill classic. Nope. Different location different course. We skidded into last call registration and tied our numbers onto our bars as volunteers assured us of a mostly flat course. Ha. No. The entire 7.5 miles was full of climbs...up and down. Out of a field of 20 strong women I was able to come in 5th place and Shannon 9th. I will say this is the hardest I've ever worked for a 5th place finish. Lots of roots, water crossings, gravel and sweet downhill lines in this race. Good times under a beautiful blue sunny sky with friends across teams.
Nicole LaGorga 5th place
Shannon Grieb 9th place
