Allison, Andrea, Anna, Ann, Christina and Devon represented Ladies First at the first cross race of the 2010 season; Blunt Park. As always, the folks running the show for the Tobacco Valley Cyclocross Series (previously the Accelerated Cure Project) put on a fantastic, grass-roots race. The course was technical and included a few necessary dismounts. Also, I always appreciate the absence of a run-up! Lucky for us, it rained over night and continued to shower throughout the day. This made for a slick, muddy course and a perfect start to the New England cross season!
Right from the start, Ladies First dominated the race. Andrea, Ann, Anna and Christina finished 1st through 4th respectively while Allison was close behind in 7th place. Devon rocked her first cyclocross race ever, placing 16th!
Overall, a great start to the cross season for Ladies First!
