Well, hey, look at that:

For the women's series win, look for Liz Baumgardt-Kays attempting to claim her first 24-hour race victory. With series leader Namrita O'Dea unlikely to attend following the sudden withdrawal of her sponsor, Baumgardt-Kays is virtually certain to win the series.

Yeah, it stings. A lot.

As far as the women's race, it will be an interesting battle between Pua and Jari Kirkland who placed 2nd OVERALL last year. But, Pua's got the Wobble-naught fit ;) Good luck to everyone racing. Sorry I will miss it.

Bummer, I feel your pain as I’m watching several friends race Moab w/o me this year. On the bright side of things Cycling news declared you a favorite to win which should serve well with potential sponsors. I raced (& shared a pit) with Liz last year and I must say that Rush is very experienced, Jari is a beast(and a sexy beast at that) but Liz is solid.

Still I think you would have beat them all if it wasn’t for the sponsor B.S. How is it that money does not equal happiness yet the lack of money constantly impedes our happiness?

Good luck at Conyers however you guys split the difference.
