WOMBA at the Firecracker 50
While I was busy rebuilding bikes, several of the Women's Mountain Biking Association of Colorado Springs (WOMBA) were racing in the Firecracker 50 mtb race in Breck. This was the USAC National Marathon Mountain Bike championships and there were a lot of good riders. WOMBA did great, sweeping the Women 30-39 podium in the Championship event. Kennon, Kim, and Tracy turned in outstanding performances on challenging course. Hillary finished second in the Women's SingleSpeed Championship event and several other WOMBA race team members competed in the relay race. It's great to see local riders and friends do so well. It's also great because of the amount of work the WOMBA ladies put into the local riding community. Its all about getting women out on the trails, teaching skills and encouraging new riders. With group rides for riders of all levels and other events WOMBA is a great resource and organization for Colorado Springs women interested in mountain biking.
