After a month long break the second half of the 2016 NJ Time Trial cup series resumed in Pedrickstown. It was a beautiful morning, blue skies, sun shinning, comfortable temps...perfect day for a bike race!
Andy Maher, Sarah Iepson and Deborah Leedale-Brown were representing the open women with Victoria Cotera in the junior women 15-18years category.
The course is a 8.5 mile flat loop with a few rollers and with freshly paved roads we were looking forward to a fast ride!
Victoria was up first in the junior category and looked strong. Andy was next in the senior women followed by Deborah just 30 seconds behind and Sarah one minute later. I got off to a good start and settled in but after the second turn my legs felt heavy and I struggled to keep my watts up. I pushed on and seeing the 1k to go sign gave me a little extra motivation to push a little harder. Deborah and Sarah both had solid rides and we ended the day with two podiums.
Open women results: Sarah Iepson- 2nd
Deborah Leedale-Brown -5th
Junior women 15-18 years: Victoria Cotera -1st
