I was calm and ready on the start line.... Go! I took middle pack at the start with the Cat 1 women but as we reached the first hill I began to push to the top three, passing all the 15-18 in my category. In the downhill I realized that I would be able to go faster, so as we reached the next hill I took the front and gained a huge gap. Going into the second lap I held first Cat 1 w with still a large gap.
I held this gap until the ending of the second lap I got caught by the first Cat 1 woman. In the third lap my legs began to kill and I slowed down. as we began to reach the end of the lap I got passed by 4 more women. Then I crashed on a small but steep downhill. I was able to hop back up and finish fast. I took 1st Cat 1 15-18 and was happy with the results.
