    Here ya go Vega!!!!

    I promised results, and they were finally posted!

    I placed 6th among all of the women in my event on Saturday.

    Final King of the Mountains standing...4th place in the under 50 women, baby!

    I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't THRILLED! I started riding just a year ago and took several breaks along the way, so there's only room to improve next year!

    A hearty congrats Brandy! The web site says "Completing any one of these rides is a huge accomplishment in and of itself. Riding all three... well, all we can say is, "We Salute You!!!" I think that about says it all, especially with only a year under your belt. Outstanding!

    Also, holy crap, you've only been riding for a year? That's even more incredible.

    Congratulations, Brandy. That's quite the athletic achievement.

    Oh, I suppose if you start at 22 miles, there's nowhere to go but way, way up.

    Thanks, my dear. Now I have to figure out how to follow in your time trialling footsteps and still train for these ultra events next year. Hmmm... The coach says it's a no-go, but I never listen to him anyway. <~~~stubborn girl. Just kidding...now I have to give props to Vireo, my inspiration...my ass kicker...the one I curse when I'm climbing. He's taught me to push myself beyond my perceived limits and without his support, I never would have attempted these epic rides.

    Oh...and come up to Atlantic City on June 20th, it's my only East Coast appearance this summer. Fair warning...after 8 days on the road with two grouchy riders and 11 other crew members, I'm not going to be smelling or lookin' pretty.

    I could do the 323 miles and 30,800 feet of climbing . . . if the time frame was extended by a couple of months.

    Way to go, Brandy. That is no small accomplishment, and you should be every bit as thrilled about it as it sounds like you are.
