Thank you. https://www.velonews.com/?s=Megan+JAstrab And they mention the gears.

"Those wins marked her 20th and 21st national titles."


She is quite smart and well parented, if you meet Mike and Lynn (named in the article) it is easier to understand her success. I think her brother has helped too.

I expect she won't be racing much in 2-3 more years because of the above and cycling is not a happy job. I was pushing her and parents hard to be a USAFA racer - she wanted nursing. Great to see kids and parents so balanced and focused at the same time.
