Velo Bella – Kona, sponsor of pro Cyclo-cross racer and Cyclingnews diarist Barbara Howe, is asking for your support to send her to Zeddam for Cyclo-cross World's. Howe earned a spot on the U.S. National team after finishing the top-ranked U.S. woman in the Crankbrothers U.S. Gran Prix of Cyclocross.
USA Cycling does not provide any financial assistance for our U.S. women’s national team, and Barb’s full time job and fellow Bellas can only take her so far. You can help cover the difference by donating today to help fund her trip to the Cyclocross World Championships. Help Barbarella conquer the Galaxy on a pink 'cross bike! How cool is that? Go to www.velobella.org and give all you can to help make Barb’s dreams come true for 2006!
