Wausau 12 hour race report!

Once again the Wausau24 did not disappoint. I was completely worn down, tired and sad from the week before but I'm SO HAPPY that I went. The whole weekend was an adventure. Getting stuck in Chicago traffic with my two race bikes on the back of my car (SCARY), stopping in Madison for a bike fit from Craig Watson, pre-riding the course in the rain with Jill and Steve, watching Jill get an impromptu tattoo on her butt the day before she raced 12-hours solo, having a ton of fun riding on the course, and going to Red Bud road after the 12-hour race was done to cheer on the 24 hour solo riders.

Racing duo with Brent Gale was a blast...the whole weekend was a blast. We were aiming for 6th place and ended up in 2nd place. Total overachievers :-) I could write pages about the weekend, but sometimes pictures do a better job portraying what happened. So here's a bunch of pictures!

Next up for me is Skirts in the Dirt! Inspired by the Beti Bike Bash it's Michigan's first ever all women-only mountain bike race. Spread the word :-) I'll be teaching a skills clinic the day before so it's going to be a busy weekend!
