Following the school visit was one of our biggest Little Bellas camps of the season, the Sea Otter Classic. Unfortunately, I couldn't race Sea Otter or ride much with the Little Bellas this year because of my hip injury. But, it was an amazing event nonetheless. Always, one of the highlights of the season is the lemonade social with the pros at this event. As usual, the pro women came out in full force to support our program and inspire the girls. The Little Bellas met a star-studded cast of pros, including four Olympic cyclists and ten professional cyclists. Four time Olympian, Katerina Nash, Chloe Woodruff, Joanna Petterson, Erin Huck, Katie Holden, Maghalie Rochette, Mary McConnelog, Kate Courtney, and Rebecca Rusch stopped by just to name a few. The pros were peppered with questions like when did you start riding, how many bikes do you have, and what is your favorite food. Katie Holden talked about how she jumps over trucks in South America, seriously. Katerina told us that her new favorite pre-race meal is mango with sticky rice. Chloe started riding by competing with her twin sister on the commute to school. Mary McConnelog revealed her former identity of an opera singer and even treated the girls to a couple of beautiful notes. Maghalie totally put me on the spot and challenged me to rap which, of course, I had to do, but only after Mary dropped a beat. The things these girls get to learn at the Lemonade Social. Thank you to all of the pro women who dragged themselves, dusty and tired, to inspire the Little Bellas. It never ceases to amaze me how generous the pro women’s field is especially when it comes down the the Little Bellas.
