Women's Wednesday – Women and Racing Part II: Why I Race. Post originally from 303Cycling.com

I thought a lot this summer about why I race. I’ve thought about why more women don’t race and what we can do to get more women racing. I’ve thought and I’ve pondered and I’ve questioned and I’ve asked people what they thought. I guess it’s time for me to tell you why I race.

I race because I can. And it really is that simple. I love racing. I love how it makes me feel when I’m done and how I feel right before the person says “Go!” I love how it makes me work that much harder during the week.
