The Inferno was a shorter race for Karen and Jeff , after doing all the longer endurance events this was all about speed.
Karen raced in the women’s open category today. At the start up the mile pavement climb Karen passed 2 girls right before they went into the single track at this point she was in third and the 4th place girl was breathing down her back. Going into the second lap when we hit the long climb that’s when the separation started. I was able to maintain my gap and by the third lap Karen was feeling pretty comfortable. Karen place 3rd today and very happy with her riding today.
Jeff also had a great race and took 4th in the 50 + category. Karen and Jeff are both on great form leading up to next week’s Marathon MTB Nationals in Texas.
