Welcome to 2013............it seems that she is coming into her own on the dirt. A little recap shows that she has podiumed each of the four mountain bike races in which she entered. Now the score is even at two and two (1st/2nd).
Last Saturday, Lee traveled past Omaha almost to Lincoln for the chance to throw it down with the best that Nebraska had to offer. She admits racing thus far on a bit of fear and downright sultriness. The course at Platte River is known for it technical features, rocky gardens and never ending climbs. It challenges you on the way up only to spit you out,steeply down praying that your butt is far enough back to keep your chin on the back side of the handle bars. It is a fine line between a death wish and the ultimate adrenalin rush. I would not have taken Lee's calm demeanor to be hiding this fascinating gem.
But, alas, she has prove me wrong. The race was billed the Platte River Battle Royale and Lee made it a Royale venture. She tossed fear to wind and raced it like she stole it. That Jamis has melded with her body to make one sweet racing machine. With this combination she brought home a State Championship to VelRosa!!!
