Meyers made it to the 1000 meter final in the women’s division, and after beating professional mountain bike riders, and last years Goldsprint winner, won the competition, and became a Goldsprints World Champion.  Meyers took home $420 in cash, and a set of Krietler bike rollers.  “I’m spending the cash on new tires for my car,” said Meyers, “I can’t wait to train on the rollers, they will come in handy in the winter!” Meyers also stated that she was shocked she won, when she just started cycling in March. “It just came naturally,” Meyers said, “I needed to go fast, so I did.”  The four locals that competed all race for...
