Julie Comes Out On Top!

It was a great weekend in Warwick, RI for the New England Verge Series finale at NBX. I remember last year at this race being bitter cold, the only race at which I wore leg-warmers. This year brought unseasonably warm conditions, in the 50s - perfect for a long walk on the beach! But this isn’t a weather report…

Let’s talk about Julie! If you’ve ever met Julie, you know that she’s overwhelmingly positive and also incredibly humble. Put her in front of a camera and she blushes immediately.

Northampton CX, A Team Averica Dinner Discussion

Hannah - I ate it on the pro-only section. But I kept riding it because why not?

Erin - I needed a closer look at the barrier. Unclipping is overrated.

 

Julie - On Saturday I carried my bike up the run-up like it was a teacup, with my pinky high in the air.

Hannah - I finished on the lead lap, triumphantly.

Erin - I saw Julie stop pedaling for a second and it made me pedal harder. I still didn’t catch her.

Julie is Exhausted but Earned Her First UCI Points at Charm City!

I got a UCI point at Charm City! Basically my season is over now. I think I’ll spend the next 8 weekends sleeping in, having coffee in a mug that’s not a to go cup and experiencing what it’s like to sit on my couch and read books again. JK, there’s no fun in that. 

It was my first weekend racing without any Team Averica teammates…and after Holy Week of racing and warming up together, reviewing the course and talking about race tactics, it was pretty lonely. BUT Drew (Husband Drew) came and it was especially awesome to have him there.
