Michele takes 3rd at Myles Standish!
Michele Smith contested the Myles Standish RR in Plymouth, Mass. The small field did four laps of a 5-mile course in sunny conditions. NEBC was active at the beginning, sending off several attacks until Cathy Rowell broke free. She rode solo for a lap-and-a-half while a small chase group, including Smith, formed behind. The group caught Rowell on the second-to-last time up the climb, then stayed together until fracturing again on the last time up the climb after a strong attack split two riders off. Smith worked with the remaining two riders and then took the finish sprint for 3rd place.
