Congrats to our NRC Women's team: Missing Link Coaching Systems/Specialized who place 6th overall at last weeks Nature Valley Grand Prix Stage Race. NVGP draws the top Pro women from all over the world. They competed in 6 stages over a 5 day period. Stages consisted of a 6.1 mile TT, 3 crits in St. Paul, Uptown Minneapolis and Stillwater, a 66.5 mile road race in Cannon Falls and an 81 mile road race in Menomonie. The team suffered a few crashes and 2 broken bikes but stayed strong with the highlight of the week being Anna's 4th place finish at Menomonie. Great job Ladies!
