A huge congratulations to the Studio Velo Women's Team who took 2nd place in the annual Rapha Women's Pretige Race here in San Francisco. One of 18 teams to compete in this 122-mile, nearly 13,000 foot climbing race, with a start and finish at the Rapha Cycle Club in San Francisco, the Rapha Women's Pretige Race is by far and away one of the hardest team races around. A true challenge of teamwork and toughness, the SV team rode the entire race with no flats, no mechanicals and no fights to arrive in under 9 hours.
And a big congrats to ERIN WERNER (shown center above in Rapha Women's Gilet), who won the QOM (Queen of the Mountain) on Mt. Vision, one of the most challenging climbs here in Marin County. The Mt. Vision segment is shown here:
The team, shown below, started at 8am and in perfect cycling conditions, made their way over the iconic Golden Gate Bridge together. What's most significant about this moment is their ability to return over the bridge together nearly 8 hours later.
Moments before the team departed from the Rapha Cycle Club, it was evident that the secret to sucess on this particular day was the ability to get along and work together. Well done ladies. You made us all proud!
