It's an exciting day for me... a" proud mom". Ivy called me yesterday from Seattle to tell me she was the 2009 WA state Cat 4 Circuit Race Champion.
She said it was a 4 lap course will lots of little steep rollers...just what she likes. Field size was about 25 women. There were several attempts made to split up the field. Ivy said she chased several breaks down. The only break that stuck - was Ivy's. On lap three she attacked on one of the steep climbs and broke clean. One other rider bridged to her and they rode the last lap off the front.
It came down to a sprint and Ivy got her by about 20 meters.
Nice job Ivy!!!
I will post pictures as soon as i get some.
