That's awesome.
I love her story, a true talent.

Very cool, happy to see her win. She strikes me as one of the really good people in the sport.

First time I've ever seen you smile GC :D

(although I did miss the holiday party so...)

eta: We watched it on the way out to the start of the road stage at the Chico Stage Race. It was cool to see how interested our girls were in how she did, especially Sofia Arreola who has won medals at Track World Cups for the Mexican Natl Team.

I smile all the time CX! You just don't make it to San Francisco enough to bear witness! Just by happenstance she came by today! I was surprised to see her so soon after the hour record. She was as unbelievably humble as always, and seemed legitimately thrilled that people at the shop and elsewhere actually watched her performance. She brought another one of her seemingly endless supply of training bikes by for a quick hanger alignment. I don't get to to work on the race bikes like CX does.......just the training bikes!

@CX.......what were Sofia's thoughts? Evelyn has very little track experience, but with that said, did remarkably well......save for a few sponges.

They were all stoked for her to beat the record, and Sofia definitely noticed the dozens of sponges getting run over and general problems with holding the black line towards the end. I can't imagine how bad I'd ride after 45-50 mins!
