Felicia Gomez -- my "fan" from the previous entry -- arrived in Europe just a couple days ago, and hit the ground pedaling at a crazy-fast race in Holland -- the races are long and flat there with absolutely no climbing. Though she lives in the US, Felicia is a Canadian citizen, and is racing with the Canadian National Team in Europe in the hopes of making the Canadian Olympic team for Beijing. She is in the Olympic pool of riders that will be considered (a huge feat in itself), and with good results over the next weeks and months, will attain her dream of being an Olympian - how exciting is that?!!
There's a picture of her here in that race in Holland -- the caption only mentions Oenone Wood, but Felicia is the Canadian-maple-leaf-clad rider pulling at the front. Yup...she rocks.
