DE, MD, VA: Abbreviated Race Reports




DELAWARE: Hit the road early Saturday morning to head up to the Wilmington Grand Prix. Cook, Anna Lang & Kacey Manderfield raced with another 65 or so ladies in the Pro 1/2 crit held on the streets downtown. The pace was fast and aggressive cornering on a couple of downhill right turns probably helped to split the field, though long straightaways after allowed for some regrouping. For safety reasons, riders were pulled & eventually only half remained to dig it out. Kacey Manderfield was in that group and got in a five person breakaway. She came in a strong 2nd behind Laura Van Gilder.

MARYLAND: Sunday we headed on to Baltimore for the Kelly Cup/Bike Jam. This was a Pro 1/2/3 race so Ali Cat joined them and another 35 or so who showed up to race around Patterson Park. Fun course with swooping turns, one a little tighter then the rest. Group stayed together for the most part with a handful of break attempts being pulled back. In the final lap, Kacey led out Anna who grabbed 3rd, Van Gilder again taking the win.

VIRGINIA: Locally, Suszann raced with the Cat 4s at the Sleepy Hole Smackdown out in Suffolk on Sunday. Heard it was a close finish for 1st and 2nd place. Hope to get more of a report soon!
