Triple Win for Compton in Ohio, Lalonde on Podium

Several Planet Bike riders headed to the Cincinnati area this past weekend for a rare opportunity to race three consecutive days of UCI events. Nearly 48 hours of rain leading up to the races caused the course for Friday to be slick and muddy. Staying upright through the numerous off camber sections proved difficult. Katie Compton was conservative on the first lap but put the jets on the remainder of the race and easily took the win.

Linda Sone took advantage of her strong technical skills and was in the hunt for third. Unable to outsprint Winfield, Linda took an impressive 4th place.

Kaitie Antonneau was riding in a solid 6th place before a snapped derailleur hanger forced her to abandon the race.
Kristin struggled in the sloppy mud but finished 11th.

Mark Lalonde rode a very strong race and finished in 4th.
