Elli Sigmond crushes it at Ohio State CX Championship!
Elli Sigmond is having a great CX season!
This weekend was an awesome illustration of how well she has been doing. Elli came to the Ohio State Champs on Saturday and raced the open 1/2/3 women’s race that morning taking second only to Jen Malik – who is primarily doing UCI races – AND THEN SHE RACED THE MASTER’S RACE THAT AFTERNOON – and crushed it there as well taking second again overall and winning her age group.
Now all of that is awesome and Elli has been crushing the fields in the OVCX all season long. But what truly tells of her character is that she raced again in the championship race on Sunday against a very stacked field. Talking to her ahead of time she said, “My legs are really tired from doubling up yesterday and I just don’t feel like they have any snap.” She started out really fast (there was a preme really early in on the first lap) and then faded way back. Come to find out, she had actually frozen up on the backside of the lap and almost had to get off her bike. She was literally at the back of the field and over the next 30 minutes clawed her way back to the front passing lots of people and showing the kind of heart and stamina that she does every single time she gets on the bike!
