Primal Pro Women headed to St. Louis for the 2013 Gateway Cup over Labor Day weekend. The roster included Tiff Pezzulo, Kaytie Scott and guest rider Jen Reither. Promoted by the fabulous Mike Weiss (owner of Big Shark Bicycles), the 4 day omnium traveled to different neighborhoods in the St. Louis area.
Dmitri Lawrence (Tiff's one-year-old) also came to support the team! You can read about racing with a kid on Tiff's blog.
The team was treated to the fabulous hospitality of Brad and Paula Baum--who went waaay above and beyond normal hosting.
The girls raced aggressive all weekend securing a victory on Saturday in Francis Park. After a 7 lap breakaway with Tiff was caught with 2 laps to go, Jen immediately countered and held on for the win. Tiff mustered a little extra for the final lap and finished 6th.
On Monday, Jen and Kaytie wore down the pack with continued breakaway attempts. Though Coryn Rivera and Anna Sanders slipped away from the field in the final laps, Tiff took 2nd in the field sprint behind Laura Van Gilder for 4th.
Thanks to our awesome sponsors and our tireless supporters (hosts, friends and family members). We couldn't do this without you!
