July 9, Augusta New Jersey. Lisa Berger finished 20th in the time trial running a nice even pace finishing strong at the finish averaging 20 miles an hour on the 13 mile course that “featured” 1000 feet of climbing. The Criterium was held the same day and LIsa improved her standings placing 15th in the the strong 30 woman field. The road race was 26 miles with 5 laps arounf a nice circuit with 2 technical turns and some punchy climbs. Near the front of the pack on the last climb, Lisa dropped her chain and was very disappointed with 20th as she “really felt good on the final climb.
The General classification put her in a tie for 15th place – Top ten was the goal, maybe next year!
