Performance Bicycle Racing Team – Riding a Tandem at Nationals
August 2, 2010 1 Comment
It’s been a little while since we’ve caught up with the women of the Performance Bicycle Racing Team, but that doesn’t mean that they’ve been taking any time off. As you can see by their results so far this year, they’ve been busy at the races all summer.
But today we wanted to highlight the newest member of the team, development rider Georgia Boswell. You may recognize the Boswell name from elite rider Evie Boswell-Vilt, and indeed you would be correct to make the connection. This is a family affair, just not in the way that you may be thinking! Georgia is actually Evie’s mom, and they are teaming up to tackle the 2010 Masters Road National Championships in Louisville, KY… on a tandem!
The Masters Road National Championships are open to competitors over 30 years old, and divided up into age-graded races to determine the Masters national champions. For tandem riders, the age groups are sorted by adding together the age of the competitors, so Evie and her mom will be racing in the 110+ womens’ division.
Here’s a video of Evie and Georgia going on their maiden tandem voyage together, and training together for the big race (which takes place on Tuesday, August 3):
Inspiration is a big part of the mission of the Performance Bicycle Racing Team, so it doesn’t get much better than seeing Evie’s mom out there competing with her daughter! Good luck Evie and Georgia, we know you’ll do great on the roads at Nationals!
