Megan Jastrab in Episode 18 made me optimistic about the future of women's cycling.
Stage 1 of the @coloradoclassicpro is finished. The race started with 2 long laps plus the addition of 3 short circuit laps in downtown Colorado Springs. I was well positioned for the majority of the race and was active in several attempted breakaways, but it came down to a down hill group sprint. Although I am just coming from Jr. Track Nationals, where spinning is the name of the game, I wasn't able to spin fast enough on my junior gears to keep me where I wanted to be for the final sprint. I ended up placing 23rd. I had a good time today suffering at altitude. Congrats to @bethannorton today for claiming the most Aggressive Riders Jersey!!! I am ready to take on tommorow! In the morning we are racing in Breckenridge with several laps at 9k-10k feet; I am sorry lungs!!!! In the evening we will be racing a crit in Denver. #amydfoundation #ridelikeamyd #Amegrips #coloradoclassic #mercurywheels
