Congratulations to Kristin Pavlovich (Kpav) for her State Mountain Bike Championship victory at the challenging, yet enjoyable (in it's own weird way) Sugarbottom Recreation Area at Coralville Lake. She rode strongly in her race, winning by over 5 minutes on runner-up, Cara Hammen. All9Yards rider Kim Hopkins (Khop) rounded out the podium with an impressive 3rd placed bronze medal! Congratulations to you all for an outstanding race!
Kim (Khop) hadn't just been sitting around doing nothing either. No-sirree-bob. Nope. Not Kim. You see, she had gone on down to Denmans Woods on Friday eve for the first Quarter Rage of the year. Impressively, she took top female honors. Rock-out.
A week or so ago, Dee headed up to Cable Wisconsin for her 7th ride at the Chequamegon 40 mountain bike race, with her hubby Dave on the tandem. They braved the rain, slippery grass, huge puddles (lakes, really), sand, mud and hills to finish 6th in the co-ed tandem division, tieing their best placing. They rode the 40+ miles in 2:53, a bit off their best of last year, a 2:51 in dry and fast conditions. You can bet they'll be back to break that 2:49 barrier!!!
Now, Jana Severson, meanwhile, has been busy on the pavement - both running and riding - she took 3rd at the DOathlon For Life on Sept. 15th, 7th overall at the Irongirl Bloomington on Sept. 20th and is currently on an airplane flying over the Atlantic Ocean to participate in the Duathlon World Championships in Italy! We'll be excited to report on Jana's results as represents Pink and takes on the World! Go Jana!
