Swenson, Villafane dominate in the desert at Belgian Waffle Ride Arizona

Sofia Gomez Villafane and Keegan Swenson won the 122-mile ‘waffle distance’ of the inaugural Belgian Waffle Ride Arizona on March 5, 2023. The field for the women came down to three riders at the front of the race until Villafane hit the gas with 40 miles to go to earn a solo win ahead of Anna Yamauchi and Alexis Skarda. Swenson, who won BWR Utah in 2020, countered a blistering attack by Christopher Blevins in the final two miles to secure his victory.

“It was a good one. It was a pretty epic last 10 miles,” Swenson said about the one-on-one battle with Blevins. “We pretty much attacked those last climbs, in the neighborhood, I brought him back, it was a lot of cat and mouse. An awesome day.”
