Girls Rock! (& some late season photos)

For most of the Penguin racers their cross seasons are wrapping up.  Here are some photos and comments from some of the most recent races.  I just have to say that the Penguin girls rock and really raised the bar this year.  Next year when I'm back to racing I'm going to have to get my butt moving to keep the  bar set by the girl's team up where it was set in '09.

Molly raced at the Bethlehem Cup (NY) mid-November and got pretty muddy.  She did awesome in her first season of cross racing for Penguin.... as a cat 4 she stepped up and raced almost all open races (cat 1-4) with one win at Paradise Cross Frenzy (VT) and a very strong finish at the Northampton (MA) Verge race.

I didn't get to see Jess and Vinnie in person at all this racing season (Oliver had other plans)...  but they were super busy tearing up the cross courses throughout the mid-Atlantic and even traveling as far as Wisconsin and Kentucky to do US Grand Prix races.  Jess sent a bunch of pictures of their season so I posted them on the team photo gallery.  Here are a few of my favorites:

And here is a huge shout out to Jess for currently being ranked #2 for Cat 3 women in the US (earlier in the season she held the #1 spot!).... way to represent for Penguin... congrats on a great season!
