I did a race on Wednesday, 1 May (97.5km). I really felt strong and at the half way turnaround, an official told me that I was the third lady. That gave me extra strengh to go even harder. With approximately 15km to go, I flew passed the second lady and when I passed her, she came in behind me and there she sat!!! For the next 15km, she sucked wheel and when we approached the finishing mats with only a few meters left, she came passed me and went over the line before me. When the official finishing times were posted, she was just one second ahead of me. I never won a race before, or even came in second, but that day I was so close!!! I really thought that, because she had done none of the work for 15km, she would not go over the finishing line before me. I can expect such behaviour from licenced riders, or even if there's prize money involved, but this was only a fun ride. I really believe that this person did not display any good sportsmanship on that day, and in future, I will definitely not step in the same trap!!
