Same with our club ride which includes a couple of cat3 racers and yet one of the best, perhaps even THE best, in our club is a 39 yr. old mother of 4. She does 25+ mph pulls for miles and climbs like a mountain goat. The longer the climb, the better. It used to bother me as my male ego was hurt, but now I usually am just in awe! She is becoming a legend around here!!
