SMBA Girls Rule the Beti Bike Bash Boy’s may not drool but the SMBA Girls definitely rule. Each year SMBA comes out with the girls team in full force and 2014 was no different. For Ashley and Emily this was their first race ever and they impressed everyone with their bike handling and fitness out on course. In the little bellas 1 lap race race Emma rocked it, coming in with big smiles. In the 2 lap race Izzie crushed it with a 4th place finish and Grace wasn’t far behind with an impressive 9th place finish.
This year many of the SMBA girls in the Little Bella race category for riders 8-14 stepped up and rode with the 15-18 age category to push themselves. The coaches could not have been prouder as they choose more riding and a bigger challenge. As always they stepped up to the plate and did great. Ari and Sasha walked away with fourth and fifth place, respectively, despite being well under 15. Emily in her first race was not far behind them in 7th place. Some of the SMBA coaches and alumni jumped in on the fun as well.
Molly, a veteran of the Beti Bike Bash walked away with another win, this year in the Sport 15-18 category. The girl’s cheered coach Heather on to a 8th place finish in the Pro/Open category. Past SMBA rider Ksenia finished in 15th in the Pro/Open category.
The girls had an amazing support crew of SMBA coaches, riders and parents, including Program Director, Jessie, Girls Coaches Sandi, Cassie and Molly, as well as, SMBA Team members and captains Jacob and Quinn. Perhaps the biggest winner of the weekend was coach Rudy who cheered on the team in full glitter and face paint camo. Our Cheering section was nothing short of impressive.
Great Job Super Stars!
