Bike Repeater Event Highlights
The women mounted their bikes first to race 220 meters on grass, dismount, turn around, remount, and ride the 220 meters back towards their ropes. Toomey and Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir got out to an early neck-and-neck lead after the first round. By the second round, Kari Pearce caught up to Davíðsdóttir as Toomey pulled away.
By round four, Pearce assumed the second position. Haley Adams was on the heels of Davíðsdóttir, who was in third place, and Brooke Wells fell behind. Barreling into round six, Toomey remained far ahead, Wells remained far behind, and the remaining three were bouncing back and forth between second through fourth place. By round eight, Adams pulled into second place and Davíðsdóttir faded into fourth. Each of them maintained their places until the end.

By round eight, Adler caught up to Medeiros and the fight for second place was on. A round later, Adler edged out Medeiros and started putting some pressure on the reigning champ.
