MASTER'S TRACK NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS + NATIONAL CHAMPION TALLY
That's a wrap to master's track nationals in Seattle. In addition to her two national championship titles won last week, Jo Johnson took home silver medals in the match sprint and individual pursuit as well as a bronze medal in the 500m TT.... PRs and good racing experience along the way. Jo also walked away with the best overall rider award!
In 4.5 yrs (we've still got more national championship races to go this season!) Kim Geist Coaching athletes have earned 9 national championship titles and 52 medals at the elite, master's, collegiate, and junior levels on the road, track, and in cyclo-cross!

ELITE TRACK NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
All said and done at elite track nationals that were held this past week at the Giordana Velodrome in Rock Hill, SC. Numerous personal records set and also several medals won.
Big congrats to Julia Lonchar who rode a great individual pursuit to her fastest finish ever, on a slow track at that. To Bailey Semian who, as a first year senior, attacked each race, especially with a third-place finish out of the break she initiated in the scratch race of the omnium. And to Kim Zubris for holding her own in the sprint events at her first national championships ever, collecting almost all 4th and 5th place finishes.
