Which quotes and statistics from chapter 4 of Wheels of Change most develop the central idea that women bicycle racers were very competitive with each other? Check all that apply.

Many sustained injuries-at a race in 1881, five of the six female competitors had previously suffered at least one broken arm-but they kept coming back.

Even so, she "rode like a wild woman for at least an hour and a half" on night five, finally tiring and falling to fourth place.

More than 7,000 people watched the night Frankie Nelson set her 18-hour record in Minneapolis, and a good number of those in the stands were female.

"Bitter rivalry, that characteristic feminine trait, and the determination to 'get even' are seemingly the actuating motives," wrote the Times.
