Vanderkitten Grabs Podium Spot at Athens!

After a strong reorganization of the road team, a change in focus and the addition of Jennifer Wilson from Southern California, Vanderkitten Racing set it's sights on the Southeast Crit Series, dropping out of the long, lonely, Tour de Gila.

Of course, whenever a big change is made, the talk is always that the team is for one reason or another not going to make it, etc... well, guess again.

After a long, VERY FAST Athens Twilight, Vanderkitten Jennifer Wilson sprinted to a 3rd place finish in front of 30,000+ spectators! The first podium came after very hard work from Leigh Valletti, Melissa Sanborn, Kele Murdin and Jenny Trew! Liz was wo-manning the radio on the sidelines and Mandy Lozano was cheering on her girls!

Congrats to the team for throwin' down!!!

With Mark's surprise visit on Saturday morning and a Vanderkitten podium spot at Athens Twilight later that night, I can't think of a better way to kick off the Southeast Crit series!

Thanks so much for all of the well wishes and continued support... we'll send updates from the road!
