Belle Meade School teacher and equestrian team leader Alex Forte (left) was in Hartford, Connecticut earlier this month for a cold, wet, icy, muddy week — during which she finished second in two USA Cyclocross National Championship races (the Women’s Masters, pictured here, and Women’s Industry championship races) and also returned to Sperryville with a fourth-place medal in the Women’s Open. Cyclocross is a cross between road racing and mountain biking.
