East Village Crit--Dee Takes Second
Dee and Karolyn braved the hilly course for the East Village Crit held Sunday in Des Moines. Dee, pictured above, came away with second place overall. She was quite excited about finishing strong. Some unknown out-of-towner beat her to the line. Karolyn hung on strong and finished further back.
After her strong performance, Dee requested an upgrade to Cat 3. She then tackled the course for a second time and raced in the Cat 1/2/3 race. Dee literally left it all out on the course for a 6th place finish. As usual, fellow VeloRosa gals were there to help Dee out and get her back up on her feet.
Congrats to both ladies for racing hard and representing the Pink Team.
It was rumored that some booted bike chick was trying to chase Dee up the final hill with words of encouragement. It could have been the beverages from the Urban Assault. Further details were not available!
