Posted by Editoress on 01/1/08

Grand-Prix Demy-Cars/Grand-Prix Hotel Threeland Luxembourg
Report courtesy Normon Thibault

Wendy said that this race was a little different from the other `cross races that she has done so far. A very big road climb and then a very long downhill. Lots of mud on the downhill. The event has happened every year since 1948.

She (Wendy) was pretty pumped with getting her first podium behind the current world champion but recognized that the event that the competition was not as strong as it has been at some of the other events so far. With 6 of 10 races done she does not now race for 8 days. The next race will be the World Cup in France.

Wendy has been updating her blog (when she can) and it can be found at :

Barb leaves tomorrow for home.
