FRIDAY NIGHT UNDER THE LIGHTS
One of the tags for Mullet's night cyclocross race was "to put something fun between your legs" for this first-time event. VeloRosa women showed up in mass to do just that. Both spectators and racers spent the night cheering and racing.
Cyclocross is a rather unique event in and of itself. Take what is usually a wide open course, make it compact and put it under the lights. Then overload the races, add a band and wash it all down with plenty of adult beverages and you have one rocking evening. This truly was an awesome party.
The pink and black kits really stood out under the lights as the ladies showed up to race. Several cross first timers including Julie H and Lee took to the night race like, well bikers to the road. Rumor has it that Lee wiped out once, pulled a dollar bill from Squirrel and drank 3 beers while riding with an assist from non-riding teammate Sam. Several other riders also collected dollar bills as part of the fun-filled evening.
VeloRosa placed well in several categories. If you have been thinking about racing, come out and join the fun on both Saturday and Sunday over Halloween weekend at Living History Farms.
Kate raced hard in the women's Cat 4 before her bike betrayed her sending her to the sidelines. In the W45+ Melinda, Lee, Julie G and Julie Hfinished 4th, 5th 6th and 7th respectively.
Thanks to all teammates and friends that showed up to support the racing efforts!
