If you think those 9 gal fields are a joke/waste of time you weren't at Madera this weekend watching the "fairer" sex suffer in 100 degree temps laying skin on the pavement and looking stronger than a lot of the guys out there.

Anyone who's out there suffering at their appropriate cat level, whatever it may be, finishes ahead of those who lack the ability or courage to get out there and lay down some pain.

More power to ya, ladies.

That's awesome. Our women's field was over 50 racers strong in the Tour de Ephrata.

Talk about going for broke. Look at the rider to the right and the wheel flex. Now thats some power. /\
