2015 February News
The team is heating up the snowy winter days with the early races of the season.
On February 14-15, Pascale Lercangee put out an inspiring performance in the first ultracycling race of the year, the Bike Sebring 24-hour race in Sebring, Florida.
New to Team PHenomenal Hope, but not new to ultracycling, she brings her positive get-it-done attitude and huge talent for going the distance to our team.
In 24 hours she raced non-stop, covering 391 miles and breaking her own past record distance in her age group. Not only was she unstoppable in that 24-hour period, but she competed with grace, smiling during the day, and pressing on courageously in the cold dark hours of the morning. Read more about her race here.
Next up on our calendar will be another new racer, Mandy Budzowski, who will be competing in Subic Bay Ironman 70.3 in on March 8!
