Tibco started attacking from the gun, they had a full team with 6 strong riders. They were launching counter attacks after every attack got reeled in. My team of 3 was doing it’s best to follow every move. With about 20 laps to go I countered an attack by Amanda Miller (Tibco). Theresa Cliff Ryan (Exergy) bridged up, then Jen Purcell (Tibco) bridged up. We started drilling it, each taking equal pulls. We got the gap up to about 45 sec then settled in and kept it steady until 2 to go. I was most worried about Theresa Cliff Ryan, our current national crit champion. I know she has a faster kick than me so I decided to go early and use my endurance to my advantage. I jumped Purcell with Ryan on my wheel with 3 turns to go. I got a bike length gap on Ryan coming out of the last turn, but she was able to close it, then come by me for the win.
