This week we checkout Suzie Livingston’s 2015 Specialized Crux.  Suzie is a consistent top ten finisher in the Senior Women’s Open category racing for the Fort Follies.   She had an especially impressive 3rd place result at Cross of the North #3. She’s also been known to mix it up with the guys in the Single Speed races. When Suzie isn’t riding, she’s convincing others that they should be as the manager at Lee’s North.
