The last Saturday of April marked the start of the road race season in Iowa. The Iowa City Road Race in Kalona brought forth a typically windy day on the open fields of Iowa. The pink team sent three stalwart ladies to battle the conditions in this race that runs 13 miles per lap.
A strong winter training regimen helped Megan hang on the main pack and finish just off it in 5th place. She used a great plan in hanging with the pack to finish near the front of the field.
Lee survived a crash that took her off of the road and put fellow biker and pink-friend Kim Topp on the ground. Shecame back with a nice pull from Kim and took 2nd in the Women's 35+ category.
Dee toed the line with the big gals in the Cat 1/2/3 race. She battled the wind and took 9th over all in this tough division that brought in highly competitive teams (that took 6 of the top 8 spots) from outside of the state.
Congrats to all of the Pink Ladies that showed up and rock the road in Kalona.
