As if the awesome kits were not enough to distiguish the VeloRosa team, Carp has provided a pink tent. This team is going pro!!! On this night, it came with a cooler of beer. Many thanks to Joann (and the team) for making sure everyone was refreshed throughout the evening.
Sarah got the group going by winning the B points race. Heather raced strong and took second. Ali came in third making it a clean sweep for VeloRosa. In the first race, Lee took third in the A race. She looked strong at the finish against some strong racers.
Lee finished the night with her first victory as she bested the field in the pulled out race. Ali finished fourth after lending Lee a wheel as the Pink Gals worked to best rival DMOS teammates. To say that Lee was excited was an understatement. She has proven that you can go from dead last for most races to finally winning one.
There were lots of fans also out to watch. Thanks to Anne and Joann for volunteering. Karolyn and Deann for cheering. Dave, well for all that he does. Also to Elise for cheering for all of the ladies.
So if you have been thinking about racing, come out next month and give it a whirl. It is one of the best nights of racing that Des Moines has to offer.
