Bean Pot/ Turtle Pond Update

Good work to Sarah and Maresa for going down to the Boston Beanpot road race on Saturday. They had two best ever Bowdoin women's cycling results (this is the first race that Bowdoin women have ever done but that just makes it more badass). Maresa took 31st and Sarah took 40th in the womens B field. Most importantly they said they had a great time and that other teams were happy and impressed to see Bowdoin women on the circuit for the first time.

Nat, Bennett and Brendan (not officially part of the club because he doesn't go to school here but might as well be a member) went to the Turtle Pond Circuit Race in NH on Sunday. Brendan rode into 24th in the pro/1/2/3 mens race and I'm sure helped out some of his Mechanical Services/ Cycle Mania teammates. Bennett took 4th in the the CAT 5 race on what i hear was a big break. He'll be a CAT 4 in no time if he keeps up riding like this. Perhaps the most exciting news of the day was Nat taking 4th in the 64 deep CAT 4 field, passing everyone in the field on the last hill except the 3 guys that broke away. From now on Nat will be racing in the CAT 3 because this finish was enough to give him an upgrade.
Good work all!
