Weekend brings doubleheader for Cat. 4 Women's Series

The 2009 Veloforma Norman Babcock Cat 4 Women's Series presented by Garmin heats up for summer this weekend with two big races.

Saturday's Swan Island Criterium will be the fourth race in the 10-race series, which is sponosred by Veloforma, Garmin, Bob’s Red Mill, Luna, Upper Echelon Fitness and Ironclad.

Sunday’s Salem Fairview Circuit Race will feature a post-race clinic and race analysis/Q&A by Tina Brubaker and Susan Peithman from the Veloforma team. Listen for their announcement at the start line about the time and location of the clinic; it will be about 10-15 mintues after the finish of the cat 4 women’s race. Get tips from the pros on what worked and what you can do better next time—as an individual rider and as a team. This is a great chance to learn more about tactics and to get feedback on your racing.

There will be more fireworks in the women’s series next weekend. The Firecracker Time Trial (Peoria), on the Fourth of July, is the next race in the series. And on Sunday, July 5, at the Firecracker Criterium (Eugene), Jan Moss of Team Group Health will bring her race savvy to another post-race clinic. Tactics will be different on this smaller, flatter course than at the circuit race, and Jan will share her insights on how the race plays out.
