The first video in the bunch is the absolute latest in Women's World Cup racing from Hoogerheeeeidie just this past weekend - it's not a great race video, but it's got pretty good music - and the awards ceremony is funny if you catch some of the announcer's bullshit. Vos ran away with this one, Katie had some crashes and ended up 4th.
The next video up is another one of those great Petitesreines' videos. This was this year's Women' 2011 World Cup held at Koksijde, site of this year's World Championship. Daphney VB won it while the now, almost unbeatable, Vos came in second. Katie came in 3rd after a very bad start - which unfortunately has been her thing this year. You'll also see some shots of Katie Antonneau, the young, very talented woman that took second in the USA Nationals, just a few weeks ago. And check out the sand boys and girls! This is going to be one tough race this weekend.
The next video is another Petitesreines' video of another World Cup held at Koksijde, this one was in 2010. In 2010 Katie owned the Women's World Cup, only to drop the last race (World Championship) at the end of the season. Let's hope she regains her power riding this weekend, like she showed the world here, and takes home the Gold! I can't even remember who came in 2nd and 3rd Katie was so far ahead. There's even more sand in this one. Looks like an absolute leg-breaking freakin' race. I'd be running - errr - walking this one.
Finally, here's one last video to complete
Ladies Women's Cyclocross Day here at Crazy Bastard Cross Central. (Whatever that is.) It's a highlight reel of the US National Race. Nice music, Katie running away with it and a good chase by young Katie A and Nicole D. Enjoy.
