Sagebrush Safari
San Diego, California, USA,
April 5, 2009
The Sagebrush Safari course was wildly
praised by all of the riders that we talked to as
it seemed to provide every rider an opportu-
nity to ride the terrain that they excelled in. The
figure eight shaped course started with a long
pavement climb that then funneled riders onto
a fun downhill section filled with grin-inducing
swoopy turns.
The riders were then greeted by another
climb and a hike-a-bike of reasonable length
after which the riders were funneled back
onto singletrack for the final descent into the
finish. Pua Sawicki (Ellsworth) clearly domi-
nated in the Pro Women’s field, finishing nearly
8 minutes before her next closest competitor,
Allison Mann (IE Bikes/Nema). Mann was
followed by Amanda Carey (Kenda/Tomac/
Hayes) and Natasha Hernday (Amgen). Kathy
Sherwin (Kenda/Tomac/Hayes) rounded out
the Pro Women’s Podium.
It was great to see so many women racing and
enjoying themselves; from the Pro Category
on to the Category 3 Masters Women, it looked
as it everyone was enjoying themselves. It was
also great to see a woman, Annette Padilla (Celo
Pacific), racing in the Category 2 Singlespeed
race. Hopefully more women will start racing
their singlespeeds and eventually we’ll get our
own Women’s Singlespeed category.
