The GGG rides have been more than just a women's group ride. We have been pushing each others endurance and technical skill levels. We all have our weaknesses and strengths and learn from each other weekly. These rides have not only brought our group closer but have also welcomed women new to mountain biking. While those that have more experience have started to compete. Some of the GGGs have been racing for years while others competed for the first time this year. Some races include:
Denise Livingston - 5th in Women's Cat II at Bear Springs Trap XC
Tonya Breedlove - 1st Beginners Cat at Soaring Eagle XC in Redmond, WA
Sam Loney - 1st Beginners Cat in the Northwest Cup at Port Angeles, WA and 2nd Beginners Cat at Soaring Eagle XC in Redmond, WA
Mel Norris - (Team Mountain Beavers) 15th in 5 Person Co-ed Cat 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo
Dara Muldoon - (Team Mountain Beavers) 15th in 5 Person Co-ed Cat 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo
These are all strong women and while many of them just want to finish this grueling event I've seen them training and I think the guys should watch out. Best of luck to you all! Many thanks to Mel Norris for bringing this group together.
