If you have been following the Boise VeloWomen blog posts this season, it is no new news that these women are incredible athletes who are dedicated to their love of cycling and overall fitness. When not racing, many BVWs compete in other disciplines and participate in other national events.
September 9: Salmon 1/2 Marathon
September 9: LOTOJA
LOTOJA. For some, those six letters represent a very large cycling goal. LOTOJA is the longest USAC sanctioned race in the nation, over 200 miles, that starts in Logan, Utah (LO) traveling through Utah, Idaho and Wyoming to (TO) its finish in Jackson Hole, WY (JA). This race is not for the faint of heart; it tests both physical fitness and mental stamina. Racers have to not only make the cut-off times, but finish the race in one day. (www.lotojaclassic.com)
Our endurance and distance guru, Morgan C. decided 2016 was her year to tackle this famous race. She trained for months on end, completing training rides that made us say, "Whoa!". Her dedication to this race lead her to an outstanding finish at 12:13:57. Yes, that is over 12 hours on a bicycle...in one day! Morgan C. says "LOTOJA is definitely the hardest ride/race I've ever done!" Our BVW tagline is Women with Goals are Heros and today, Morgan C. is our hero! Way to achieve your goals and inspire others!
