IVINS, UT -- Day four of women's cycling began in Ivins, a growing community adjacent to St. George. The road races featured fast-paced action on a new course comprised of three distances, rolling terrain, climbs, and exquisite fall foliage.

Because the 50K and 37K women's road race courses were significantly changed this year (much to the dismay of several competitors including the publisher of GoSpeedyDivas.com), the following winning results will be considered records for the course.

62K Road Race

This course for Division I men 50-69 and Division II men 50-64 was a circuit course featuring plenty of "rollies" (rolling terrain); 1,700 foot gain/loss, and upgrades mostly under 6% but one 9% (0.4 mile), one 6%-11% (1.1 mile). Long downhill, fast, twisty, challenging descent through scenic Snow Canyon State Park (reverse Hill Climb) near finish.

However, one woman raced that tough course! Nina LaFerla (Omaha, NE) secured her gold medal with a 2 hour, 54 minute, and 57 second time.

50K Road Race

Cyclists in Divisions I and II, Women 50-64 followed the course out to the turnaround at Eagle Mountain Ranch on the northern outskirts of Gunlock, a small farming community.
