TWENTY16 made the race hard and aggressive, yet again. My teammates and I launched attacks, and drove the pace hard on the sections of racecourse that hurt the most.

There were about 5 riders in that little split. Coming to the finish line, I was sitting second wheel, behind my teammate Alison, who our competitors had caught me up to. I yelled at her to keep driving to the pace, to bring me to the finish line, with the other riders on my wheel.
Canadian Criterium Champion and sprint specialist, Leah Kirchmann of Optum launched her sprint with 200m to go. I followed hard, and didn't manage to pass her front wheel by the time we reached the finish line. A second place finish thanks to great teamwork to finish off the Sea Otter Classic was awesome. Alison and I celebrated by eating our Kiku Apples on the podium. Woo hooo!
