Welp, we did it! We brought home pink! How bout that? What a whirlwind of a trip, the race flew by full of pasta, hot box van rides(no ac), goofy bike racers, more water bottles than I can count, morning espressos and a different hotel every night.
Here is a link to each stage, where we started, finished and distances.
My blog won't be a race report, more of the pictures I took and maybe a video if I can get it to load.
It was an honor to be chosen as part of this team and have this experience, to race the world's biggest women's race and to win it as a team, I never thought that would be a goal on my list to check off. But you can't think about it too much seeing that I'm in the airport again, headed to the next race - Cascade Cycling Classic in Bend, OR(July 16-21).
I answered a lot of questions regarding the race on the podium cafe website, along with a couple of other well known racers. Check it out here: http://www.podiumcafe.com/2013/7/11/4513452/giro-rosa-2013-rider-reactions-part-1-marianne-vos
So here goes all the fun pictures:)!!
I hope you can view the video, it's just a little insight of what we did everyday, post race:) ESPECIALLY after we won - poor Jack had to drive us and the van was ROCKING with girlie music;) hahaha!!!!
