Maria competed in the 12-hour event. A woman on a recumbent hasn't competed in this event since the course was moved to Glen Rose in 2009.  But for comparison,  the men's recumbent record was 171.9 miles and the men's DF (regular racing "diamond frame" bike) record was 204.1 miles. Maria did an astonishing 212 miles. This distance was matched yesterday only by Kurt Searvogel, one of the strongest male DF ultracyclists in the world.
