Laura and her teammates rocked the 24 Hours in the Enchanted Forest this past weekend. 14 laps total. I was the pit bitch and wrenched bikes for the girls. Team members were Laura Kyriakakis, Julie Carpenter, Tonya Wynes and Katie Kappenhafer. It seems like girls have more problems than guys do when it comes to bikes. LOL. For example: Katie came into the pits during the night and her White Brothers Loop left wiper seal had blown out. I've never seen that before but I was able to repair it and it lasted the duration of the ride. Weird. Also brakes were a common issue. "Jeff, my brakes are rubbing" Really!
The weather was fairly hot and real dusty dry conditions. The fire danger is through the roof everywhere it seems like. Here in Rico it hasn't rained it quite some time.
I was happy the girls had a great race and rode well through the entire night. Congrats!!!
