Sawicki wins with nine minute margin

Pua Sawicki (Mata/Okle was not pushed by her competitors today, winning by more than nine minutes over Allison Mann (Rock and Road) who finished second. Rebecca Tomaszewski (Niner/Ergo) finished third followed by Anna Fortner (Team SoCal) in fourth place. Dorothy Wong was fifth.

Sawicki, who is preparing for a full World Cup season, tried to make this a hard training day. "I was a little bummed when that road climb was over. I love that stuff. It was a great course and a beautiful day. It was just awesome."

Sawicki told Cyclingnews that she hopes to qualify this year for both the cross country and marathon World Championships. A six-time national endurance champion, she had many podium finishes in conventional cross country events last year as well.

"I earned this shot (at the World Cups), so I may as well take it and see what happens."

The next stop on the Kenda Cup Qualifying Series is in the Santa Ynez Valley in Los Olivos, California on March 10-11.
