The Cat Squad repeated our 2nd place performance in the TTT for the third year in a row! Emma and Elisabeth returned this year, joined by Mary and Caitlin. This year, our biggest point of pride (heh. pride. like lions.) was bringing all four of us to the top of the climb together, with the front two finishing just a couple seconds ahead of the other two. We were just 10 seconds off our first place rivals, the Mathletes, and we’re super proud of our strong teamwork.
Couldn’t have asked for a more perfect TTT! Rotations were spot on, pulls were super well distributed, potholes avoided, gaps were non-existent, pace was steady, communication was perfect, Mary stayed safe despite losing her contact lens halfway through, and we flew up the climb all together, finishing 2 riders about 3 second ahead of the other 2. What a great way to start the season! #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #ttt
Our top two finishers, Caitlin and Mary, quickly hit the reset button to line up for the 3/4 circuit race, where they were joined by teammate Knar.
All three stayed in the front group until the final selections, with Caitlin finishing 12th, Knar making a late last-lap surge up the climb to claim 14th, and Mary coming in 18th.
