On Saturday, June 25, four members of Spokeswomen Racing lined up together at the start of the 2016 Skagit Flats Circuit Race in Stanwood, Washington. Spokeswomen Racing was ready to put up a fight!
Spokeswomen worked hard for the first few laps, pulling the women’s pack along. By the fifth and final lap, Lori and Tara were in a small group a short bit behind two ladies who had managed to break away at the end of the 4th lap. As the finish line approached, Tara reported:
“As we headed to the finish it was one girl, another girl, Lori, and me. As we approached the 200m it became clear to me what to do. I have a teammate! I can make this happen!! I pulled up next to Lori. ‘Come on’ I said in a whisper. First behind me, then past me… Third!!!”
Lori Surges – 3rd
Tara Mixon – 4th
Linda Nalis – 8th
Tracy Chen – 11th
