Jen (on right) and a fellow competitor just about to launch.
Jen was able to roll in and win her age group again (2nd overall, womens novice) just as a gigantic UFO landed at the start/finish line.
pro/open men on the line: #16 Essam Welch, #17 Corey Piscopo
this is one of my favorite Town Challenge races; lots of singletrack and straight up and straight down the mountain. 20 kilometers with 1000 meters vertical gain/loss in 1 hour 13. good for top 12-ish overall and 1st place in the singlespeed division.
