Pacific Cycling Centre athlete Nik Vogler recently came second in a 44 mile road race in Wenatchee, Washington. She sent this report on her achievement.

“Located in the centre of Washington state, nestled right next to the Cascade Mountains, Wenatchee is surrounded by fruit orchards. The road race started out with a nine mile section of rolling terrain. It consisted of two loops, each loop having a five mile climb up and through winding narrow roads, fruit trees and farmland.

Having no idea about the capabilities of other riders in my field, my intent was to start and hold my position in and amongst the top five riders. That said, as soon as the climb started to get serious my plan was to push my way to the front and hold a steady pace until the climb was over and then reassess the situation.

By the time I got to the top feed zone there was only one rider left along side of me and then we began our long decent. The downhill was long, rainy and the visibility was poor. I dropped back and maintained my position for the second lap, attempting to close the gap that had opened up between me and the first place rider.

After a last hard effort and the final long wet descent, I made my way to the finish line and rode in second position, which in turn scored me a fourth place finish in the overall GC. A big thanks to my coach and family for all the support and encouragement.”
