Regina Doubles up With Wins at Woodstock and Mt. Blue


Women’s Woodstock 3/4 (5/2/15)

I was excited for this race, as it was the first race of the year with a solid climb. This was my first time racing at Woodstock, so I took some time (at 11pm the night before) to study the map with teammate and captain, Natasja Brooijmans.

The Tufts Criterium is the race that initially sparked my interest in bike racing. The course is technical, fast, steep, and really hard. I couldn’t wait.

Bike racers who have had the chance to race the Beanpot Criterium might argue that the placement of the campus on a hill is strategically designed to maximally shred legs.
