Race: RT 29 TT
Location: Frenchtown, NJ
Rider(s): Teresa DiSessa-Johnson, Andy Maher, Nikki Ragonese
Today Nikki, Andy and Teresa headed to Frenchtown, NJ for the fast and flat 10 mile Rt 29 Time Trial. The morning weather was unexpectedly cold for a June day with the temperatures in the 50’s at the start of race. This made clothing choice not so ideal for Andy and Nikki who had already stashed there winter stuff away for the summer season. Teresa got lucky and still had her arm warmers and sleeveless base-layer in her race bag After numbers were pinned on and with one more stop at the bathroom the ladies used the 8 mile ride up to the start for their warm up. Today was a tough day for everyone as Andy was feeling her injury after yesterdays 57 mile RR, Nikki had super tired legs from her own RR and Teresa coming off being sick with a wicked cough all week. Despite the tough competition who showed up all three ladies all dug deep and gave it all that they had. Nikki finished 1st just 6 seconds ahead of the Famous Betty Tyrell from Team Somerset for the Women open category. Teresa and Andy took on the Eddy and finished 3rd and 5th respectively. The day that started cold ended up warming up to nice temperatures as we waited for results. Taking home two podiums for the day so despite challenges and difficulties today was a HUGE success!
Nikki Ragonese 1st place
Teresa DiSessa-Johnson 3rd place
Andy Maher 5th place
