GREEN MOUNTAIN STAGE RACE
Kim Geist Coaching athlete Jody Frank had an OUTSTANDING race at the Green Mountain Stage Race in Vermont this past weekend. She went into the final stage with a 4th-place standing in the overall GC in the Cat. 3/4 Women's category, but unfortunately crashed out in this stage. In the process of the stage race, though, she held 4th overall in the Queen of the Mountain competition and 5th in the sprint standings. She also earned 2nd, 3rd, and 4th-place stage finishes among 47 competitors. What a race for a Cat. 4 racer in her very first year!

Julia Lonchar placed 2nd among Women Cat. 1/2. Jody Frank finished 2nd among Cat. 4 women and 5th overall among all women in her first ever time trial.
