WITH ROOM TO SPARE
This weekend...Julia Lonchar took the win in the Race Avenue Criterium in Lancaster, PA by riding off the front solo for the final 10 laps in the Women 1/2/3 (pictured with plenty of room to spare!).
Brian Wacik earned his first ever race ...victory in his category of the Wounded Warrior time trial in Boonsboro, MD. Bailey Semian took third in the same time trial in the Women 1/2/3 field which helped her finish 4th overall in the Tour of Washington County Stage Race. Nick Vita won the road race stage of the race in the Men 3/4 field.
And Cheryl Fairweather completed her first ever sanctioned bike race and that is certainly an accomplishment worth noting, as well!
