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.

GETTING OLDER, GETTING FASTER
With the holiday this past weekend, the number of competitions happening were a bit light, but Jo Johnson took part in the Atlantic Regional Master's Track Championships and, en route to the omnium win, took a whopping two seconds off her flying lap time. As she likes to say, getting older and getting faster.

UCI SCRATCH RACES
Kim Zubris raced her way to the WIN in the UCI international cratch race at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center last night. This after a top-5 placing in the UCI scratch race last week. Bailey Semain, first year senior rider, also earned two top-5 finishes in these events. Congrats to these two.
