Saturday’s Rosena Ranch Circuit Race turned out to be quite a good event. The race allowed our KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo riders and support crew to do what they do best: race a great heads-up, strategic race.
The race course looks fairly simple on paper, but can be quite challenging due to the tight turnaround a couple of short rolling hills and lots of crosswind. To race this race effectively, a rider and his or her team have to be well organized with a solid starting strategy, and be ready to change it all on the fly.
The first lap started off at a steady pace but after just a moment or so the attacks started. The race covered 25 laps on the short 2 mile course in would take about 2 hours to complete at race-pace. This doesn’t sound like a long time, but the race usually comes down to just a few riders at the end because of the intensity and aggression of the attacks the riders would launch.
After several attacks went and were recollected on the opening laps, a breakaway was established which quickly gained 30 seconds on the field. The group had 4 riders, one of them being a KHS-Maxxis-JLVelo rider of Duban Sanchez. This situation was decent being 1 in 4 chance of winning out of the breakaway. It was also a good position because we had three of us remaining in the field, ready for the reshuffle and opportunity to go up the road in another move.
With David Santos, Shawn Daurelio and myself being patient in the field, we were able to sit-on and not do work, forcing the other riders to the front if they want to stay in contention for the finish of the race. This put Duban in a good situation not having to work hard in the break. It also allows us in the pack to relax, while our competitors have to work hard if they want to stay in race contention by reeling this breakaway back.
One Woman. One bicycle. One amazing goal.
To be the world’s fastest female on a bicycle. Ever.
