The trails and roads have been good to us this summer — so good that we’re outside whenever we can be and not spending time doing things like updating our blog. So here’s a little collection of highlights from our Instagram over the past few months!
The MTB squad kicked off the season at Fair Hill, where Trek sponsored equal payouts for women.
And Emma and Elisabeth got to hold some giant novelty checks…
Eve represented our squad at the Women’s Woodstock GP, a race that goes above and beyond providing a truly pro racing experience for women.
In addition to crushing it on the MTB and moving into the Cat 1 field, Caitlin kept up her running training as well, coming in under goal time at the Broad Street Run.
YES CAITLIN!!! Finished #broadstreetrun in 1:19:50, with a pace of 7:59. Also obviously the best-dressed runner in the field. Looking great at Mile 7 here! (Oh and PS, that @ironmantri hat is legit. Caitlin is a total boss.) . . . . . . . Stoked that @vergesport can stock us with not only cycling kit, but running gear, too! #multisport #myverge
Despite a smattering of bad luck in races, Erica also put running skills to use, crossing the finish line running with her bike to still make podium spots.
We got out there today at French Creek!! Mud, slickness, and a relentless course for Erica, Meghan, Caitlin, and Elisabeth. @ericajoymoe took the win in the 2s, and @egrindcore took 5th in the Pro/1. @caitlinjthompson made her debut in the 1s, and @meghandinneen powered through food poisoning to make it happen. #myverge #kendatires #handupgloves #skratchlabs #bicycletherapy #podiumcats #mtb
Lindsay spent many weekends getting familiar with the West Virginia gnar, building skills and confidence over slippery roots in a full Enduro season.
Chael and Sam went full send. Here’s Chael on her way to winning her category at the Mountain Creek DH race.
And look at Sam (and Chael) using enough postage to send it halfway across the world!
Before undertaking a massive move and renovation project, Meghan got in on some early season MTB racing, too, cruising her way right into the Cat 1 field after a several-years hiatus from racing.
Happy #InternationalWomensMTBDay! Here’s to the Sisterhood of the Shred, to the Woods Witches, to the sense of accomplishment that comes from inching ever-closer to Log Lady Status. May the switchbacks lead to triumph and may the poison ivy always remain far, far from where you fall. . @meghandinneen and @egrindcore, as captured by @utensilhensel after the @masuperseries Cat. 1 XC race at Fair Hill
Eve and Mary teamed up for some crit racing mid-summer, landing some podiums along the way.
The XC squad took a mid-summer break from racing and headed out to Raystown Lake for a team family vacation with our pals at Team VeloDash. It was a very nice time.
After a super strong start to the MTB season, Emma had an unfortunate crash at Bear Creek that sideline her with a broken wrist. But we’re stoked to say she’s back in business, got back in time for Nationals, and then absolutely crushed it with two podiums at the Julbo Eastern Grind.
We have a little bit of summer left, one more race in the MASS for the XC crew, and many of us are gearing up for the start of Little Bellas this Sunday. Then it’s on to cyclocross…
