Canadian Results from Texas

Fayetteville Stage Race was a hotly competitive race.

The stages consisted of circuit course on a 20-mile loop over rolling terrain road race Saturday morning, (40 miles). Later in the day, a time trial course of a 6-mile loop, over rolling terrain. Finally, today's road course consisted of 2.6 mile stretch, leading up to a 15.2 mile circuit (total race distance 63 miles), on tough Texan roads and rolling hills with a fierce head wind that picked up throughout the race. A Hot Spot on the second lap tested everyone's legs after yesterday's relentless headwind riding in both the road race and time trial.

I finished 4th in Saturday's Road Race, 6th in the TT which put me going into today's (Sunday) race at a General Classification of 5th overall, behind some serious competition. (Andrea Hannos of Rona - Esker & Stephanie Hannos of HHH were present). After launching an attack on the 3rd lap on the 'hot spot' climb, 5 other women followed, a counter-attack shortly ensued by Stephanie Hannos definately assisted us in putting a 10 minute gap on the rest of the field. With the 6 women break away, we put some time between us, and helped us secure, (or in my case), move up on the GC.

With 5km to go, Stephanie suggested I take a 'flier', which felt good, but eventually, I got caught, on the final sprint with 1km to go....but I wasn't giving up that easily, fighting for every second and finishing 3rd in the Women's 1/2 Sunday road race, only 3 seconds behind the winner Megan and 2nd place finisher, Andrea Hannos, Stephanie Hannos finished 3 seconds behind me.
