Evelyn Egizi MARBA Champion

Evelyn Egizi- MARBA Cyclocross - Overall Series Winner 


Evelyn Egizi seems to excel in the cooler temps. Ev took over the lead in the Sportif 'Cross Cup Series Cat3 Womens standing and went on to defend the lead to the end taking the overall series win. At the MABRA Cyclocross championships in November, Ev also took top honors in the Womens 50+ group to score another MABRA jersey.

Ev took some of the running workouts she was doing to prepare for cyclo cross and put it to good use. Ev entered the Turkey Chase 10k on Thanksgiving Day and scored a very notable 6th out of 145 starters in the Women's 50-54 group with a great time 51:16. Also of note is that Ev's time this year was only 9 seconds slower than her previous go at this event back in 1997. Cycling keeps you young.
