It's a fun circuit in Bowie, MD.
It rains... Every. Single. Year.
It may be one of our favorite events of the season!
It's DAWG DAYS!!
This year, 5 of the CAWES ladies lined up to race against a VERY strong field of MABRA riders. BChan, Little D, Badger, Borda, and Choppah ignored the overcast skies and the constant threat of rain (which eventually happened, beginning during our race and coming down heavy at the start of the Men's 1/2/3) to start the race alongside the beautiful chicas of ABRT, the super legs at NCVC, and a few one offs from Artemis, EPS, and Colavita (it was great racing with you again, Lindsay!!).
It was a pretty fast race, all in all, with a nice tailwind helping us up the dragger of a climb leading to the finish. We tried to be very active in the race, hoping to get Little D off in a strong break. We attacked, we countered, we watched, we waited... but, it was not to happen.

With only one to go, Borda and Little D got into great positions in the field. There was a little argy-bargy at the final curve coming into the finish that bumped Borda back a few spots, but Little D held on for 3rd in the Cat 3s (PODIUM!!!) and 8th overall!
We had so much fun at this race...it was great to all be together for a wonderful event!
With the season drawing to a close, the Wasabi Warriors will be spending some down time in the mountains for an end of the season riding weekend and hitting up some Fall Cross races!
