Posted by Editor on 03/24/99

Palmer Wins Sea Otter Award

We spoke last night with Sue Palmer-Komar (from California, where she is getting ready for the World Cup this coming weekend). She says that she is fairly pleased with her results at the Sea Otter - 21st overall in the road and 11th in the mountain bike stage races, particularly since she suffered an asthma attack during the road race. We also found out that Sue was awarded the 'Iron Otter', for being the only woman to complete both events! Congratulations, Sue.
