The 2016 El Tour de Tucson was held on November 19th. SAGA was able to field a team of five riders, including Anna Catarina List, Claire Swinford, Erin Russ, and two out-of town visiting trans riders, Jillian Bearden of Colorado Springs and Ruth Seaman of Oklahoma.
It was a fine day Saturday. There were 2,109 contenders in the 106-mile race. Jillian came in first in the Women’s division, while the other members of Team SAGA turned in respectable finishes as well. The race was a great finish to Team SAGA’s first outing.
