Cross Nationals - part 2 - Kathleen Porter

 Kathleen would never pass up a chance to race her bike
whether it is a roller race, road race, crit, mt bike, long, short, tt or
 It is not only the chance to race her bike 
it is the opportunity to travel, watch the races, support her friends and teammates and just hang out.
 On the national level we get to race out true age groups.

 Here is a great video by our good friend Dave Maple - the publisher of Momentum Magazine
out of Des Moines.
No Spokes - but a very good feeling for the event and a focus on the fast folks

The conditions for Kat's race were all over the place - snow, ice, and mud
A lot of steps - one of the hardest sections of the race. That's not Kat? Any ideas??
Kat in the mix with her 50-54 age group competitors - fight her way down the rough and tumble hill
This course had a lot of off camber sections - perhaps too many.
Here's our fearless girl on the big stair step run up
Still smiling in the snow, ice and mud
On the hill side with the long back part of the course above
The condition of the course got more muddy as her race went on - maybe easier?

finishing the second lap
A very good day at the races - finishing far better than her expectations.
 " I just don't want to finish in last place"
She did way better.
