Vanderkitten Racing in Athens and Ready for a Fight!
With some excellent training under their belts from Redlands and Sea Otter, Vanderkitten's sprinters have descended upon Athens, GA today for the Twilight Crit, part of the USA Crit Speed Week series in the southeast.
Liz Hatch, still recovering from a bad accident in Visalia, will not be racing for Vanderkitten this week in the Southeast, where she has a huge fan base. "Disappointed does not even come close to how I feel right now. The majority of my training has been focused on coming down here and doing well. The injury to my hip and lower back are worse than originally thought, so I am heading back to the Bay Area on Sunday for more treatment from Dr. Kano."
The remainder of the Vanderkitten Squad includes Leigh Valletti, Melissa Sanborn, Jenny Trew, Jen Wilson and guest rider Kele Murdin. The team will be contesting the Southeast Crits and look forward to a race report later this weekend from Athens!
