Report- CadoMotus Ladies At Gross Gerau International Criterium

CadoMotus shared a second report from the Gross Gerau International Criterium- Ladies gaining confidence

“For me this was a real surprise. I’m very happy with this result. I know I can sprint, but I didn’t know I could do so well in a points race. I earned points as well during the race as during the last sprint. That shows I’m in a good shape. And the team did a great job by doing so much work in the lead.”

Reports- Minto Run For Reach (Ottawa)- From Road Rash Chronicles

Road Rash Chronicles shared a couple of report on this past weekend’s Minto Run For Reach in Ottawa- good stuff; My Run for Reach Experience. *sigh* and also Pondering

Well the first race of the season has come and gone. Thank god. And as I sit here at the office this morning, my back is still fighting me. Can I not have that thing removed? Hmmm.

First off, it was great seeing everyone. Being able to catch up with the TO crew and the Montreal crew is always fun. Great bunch of people and equally amazing skaters. Be sure to read up on the event from my fellow bloggers.

While Candy, Mike, Peter and other bloggers describe race tactics, attacking their packs, break aways, tons of strategies and “playing” that is happening in their particular race bubble, I find myself thinking “my goal was to finish faster than last time”. Pretty simple.

My Pictures- Run For Reach (Ottawa)

As you can tell by the variety- or lack thereof – of photos that I am sharing from this past weekend’s Minto Run For Reach in Ottawa, I’m more focused on racing, warming-up, cooling down, and executing race plans, rather than taking pictures. These days, my camera tends to stay put away in the camera bag, and that’s ok because I know there are plenty of good photographers (case & point).
