The Bay Area cycling community rallied again this past week to help Leonel Quinteros recover his stolen Focus cyclocross bicycle through the power of social media.
If I had told myself 6 years ago, “Hey Jenny Oh Hatfield*, in the future, you will be racing bicycles,” I would have laughed.
I came, I raced and I played cat-and-mouse on the course with Jenn, Vanessa (my Jortz nemesis) and Laura. In the end I came in 18th overall.
Today we were bestowed with another glorious Sunday in the Bay Area, which meant another fine opportunity to sweat and toil in the afternoon sun had arrived.
Today’s race report can be summed up in a few words: cupcakes, heat, stairs, singletrack, beer and suffering.
