Yes they are legit earned unfortunately my recollection is a possible first name only of Carol. ( NE woman) I can only find records of UCI going back to 1990 I believe it was earned prior to that date sorry but is all my brain can dump out now.

When I emailed with Chris he didn't respond to that portion of my message

I was thinking it would have been when he was a solo builder, but I wonder if they would count for a frame built while he was at Witcomb with Weigle, Sachs, and Serotta?

Carol Waters was the dominant woman in NE in the early 90s, was master's world champ in XC. However, she always rode a Merlin.

If I recall correctly, a woman from CO won master's worlds on a Fat.
