When the pros come to town

Fearless Femme (in purple/white) called up to the start line
Tiffany Pezzulo, Amy Cutler and Lauretta Hansen

We had a great two days hosting USA Crits Champion and former Vanderkitten pro Tiffany Pezzulo, (now racing with DNA Cycling p/b K4), while she was in town for the Mayor's Cup Boston. Tiffany arrived late Friday afternoon, (September 18th), early enough to be able to assemble her bike and head out for a quick ride with me before sunset. Yaaaaay!!! Since she had a workout to do, we rode over to Marblehead Neck together, where she was able to get in a workout on her own and shake off a long day of plane travel. We then rode a cool down lap together before heading home. So, so, soooooo much fun!!! Riding with Tiffany was really great and I'm excited for her to come back next year.

On Saturday, we headed into Boston where she met up with the team she was guest riding with for the race -- Fearless Femme p/b Haute Wheels. (DNA/K4 ended their season weeks before, so she was in Boston solo.) As a "guest rider" for Fearless Femme, Tiff's role was to assist their riders during the race with the goal of getting one (or both) of them to the podium -- which she did both days. Fearless Femme's Lauretta Hansen placed 3rd at the Mayor's Cup and 2nd the following day in Hartford. Yessss!!! (Amy Cutler also did terrific.)

It so much fun having Tiff with us -- (although much too brief) -- and really, really fun watching her race! Such awesomeness.
