I can't believe it!
My husband's team recruits pretty good riders, so I was kind of hoping that after some *good* placements they might pick me up (they're quite well sponsored and get a lot of good stuff, sometimes get their entry fees reimbursed, etc.). But I was also researching local teams with a lot of women so I'd have some companionship at races. Problem is, there ARE no such teams! Very few local teams, very few women.
So DH came back from the regular Tuesday night race last night and told me I'm on the team! Apparently he only had to tell the head guy that his wife took 8th at the last two races! He was so sweet to pipe up about me, and now I'm on a team! And as of last weekend, I have an annual license too, so I guess I'm a bike racer!
