Mara Abbott is back, and she wants title No. 5
Mara Abbott’s blood, sweat and tears for the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic has produced an IHBC record four consecutive road race championships, and it’s caused her to postpone her retirement from professional cycling to try and make it five in a row.
“Unfortunately, the field is small. But there’s always someone who pops up who knows how to climb,” said Michael Engleman, director and founder of the U.S. Women’s Cycling Development Program, who helped pin down Mara Abbott’s winning number in last year’s Iron Horse road race.
Mara Abbott is stepping off the sidelines and back into her favorite Iron Horse saddle this year. She gave up retirement from professional cycling, and she only recently was cleared to ride her bike after a broken foot. “The Iron Horse is special,” she said.
Sarah Zoey Sturm is keeping good company these days. She recently rode her way onto the Collegiate All-Stars with the University of Colorado’s Heather Fischer, the collegiate national road race champion. Both will challenge Mara Abbott for Iron Horse supremacy Saturday.
