Duvnjak Files - The freshest Jazz Apple
19 Jun, 2009
So today was a stunner once again!!  Not only was the sun out baking, its was by far the most testing course of the 3 days!! It's called Tulsa Tough for a reason!!!

The only flat part of the course was the start finish area which was about 400m long and then a hard right into a steep 250m climb, then a few more steps up and up, hard right and slight down hill and a sharp right hand turn down a steep hill to the finishing straight!! 

 You would think that on such a dangerous corner is where the carnige would happen, but no, seems that the girls in our bunch have a special talent in crashing on the uphill!!! Thank god the Jazz girls don't posses this talent and were fortunate to get through the races in one piece!!

So anyway the race was 60min!!The pace was on from the gun, and pretty much within 15 min or so the bunch had whittled down to 30 riders or so!! Lauren and Dotsie were right up there, covering and countering moves!! It was awesome to see!! 

 Malindi, Steph and I were on the climb showing our support (from the sidelines at this point)!! There was a huge party atmosphere, with on house having a DJ and the occupants dressed up in speedos, sparkly suits, pink wigs, and needles to say they were rather merry and barely standing at 2pm!!!   The big screen was in perfect position, we got to see the whole race and managed to steal a bit of TV time too!! Parading around in our snazzy Jazzy skinsuit!!  :)

So back to the race! Watching Lauren so strong and dominant in the pack was like a proud mama's moment!!  "shes with me"/ "that's my girl" type thing!!  She finished 8th overall, a great result and a high to finish on!!  Philly here we come!
