Amanda Wakeling Rocks Cross on the Rocks!

The clubs Amanda Wakeling dominates yet again.
From the "Cross on the Rocks" Vancouver Island Cyclocross series

Open Women (after 6 races)
1st Place: Dawn Anderson
2nd Place: Joele Guynup
3rd Place: Amanda Wakeling

Most Improved Female - Amanda Wakeling. After a great rookie season two years ago, where she dominated the women's beginner category at 13 years old...last year Amanda was 11th in the Open Women for the series. A few DNF's. Sickness and some sub-par results. This year she came back and got stronger towards the end of the season and placed third overall for the series. All at 15 years old. Plus she was the youngest female at National Champs racing the elite women.

Youngest female at nationals!
