Here's a little snippet from the start of Kim Thomas' race in Bend Oregon (wherever that is) yesterday. Kim did very well in her first National Championship race - finished on the leader's lap, and beat a few people to the line. Well done Kim! Her first report after the race on FB was: "WOW AM I MUDDY." She should make a T-shirt out of that one. Anyway, thanks to Kim, here's the video of the start. Looks brutal - more like a TdF sprint finish than a women's master race. Looks like they were going for it!
