Starting the season with a bang

2011 is officially here. The new season. Is it that time already? Apparently. I do not want to make a comeback; I want to make a statement. The statement is that 2011 holds the promise of great accomplishments for Peanut Butter & Co. TWENTY12 Women's Professional Cycling Team, and this year will continue to bring each of us closer to securing our dreams. Nothing can deter us from our goals. No obstacle is too great, and no race is too hard. My traumatic injury is a distant memory, and I am starting this year with renewed vision, fortified bones, and unified team. Welcome to 2011, welcome to the future of American women's cycling.
