Flawless teamwork by Team Ladies Power and Team Municipalidad de Goduy Cruz helped each sweep the podium at GFNY Argentina this past weekend.
Maribel Aguirre of Ladies Power took the win in 3:42:16 over teammates Mariela Delgado and Micaela Barroso in the women’s race. The team not only owned the podium, they placed five riders in the top six.
For the men, team Municipalidad de Goduy Cruz outfoxed a small lead pack of riders, including ex-Pro and GFNY Panama winner Luis Enrique Lemus, to roll across the finish line three abreast in 3:32:29, 50 seconds in front of the chasing pack.
188 riders finished GFNY Argentina with two riders disqualified for unspecified reasons. The 143km gran fondo started in San Juan in northwest Argentina and rode out to the Punta Negra dam before returning to San Juan.
