I could provide more examples where cat 1/2 women were doing quite well in Men's 1/2's and 3's races..
But I won't, because it isn't even relevant to the discussion about improving Women's racing.
Ladies' night at the Driveway doesn't hurt either. The get their own course for racing and clinics all night, and can still head down to race co-ed on another course. Hell, just the existence of the Driveway track and Holland Racing to run it are huge factors in the health of this sport in Austin.
The facebook comments note that the woman on the right, back down the hill, did four races last night. Great opportunity there.
