In a previous blog, I wrote about the felony charges filed against a couple of women involved in cheating scheme for the 2009 Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race.
Wendy Lydall (the woman that actually rode the event) has pleaded guilty to third degree criminal trespass, a misdemeaner charge. She has a one-year deferred sentence as long as she takes a bicycle safety education course, writes a letter of applogy to the race organizers and to the community. Not fulfilling those arrangements could land her in jail for up to 6 months.The race director is also looking for a complete explanation as to how the two pulled off the switch, getting through the pre-race check-in process that requires a photo ID.
The second woman, Katie Brazelton, has yet to face the judge.
The Summit Daily has more details.
