Retired two-time Olympian, World, and National mountain bike champion Alison Dunlap heads to Boston this weekend for a day of cyclocross skills training and a dinner to benefit the Breast Cancer Fund.

Since retirement, Dunlap has shifted her focus to helping other women realize their potential as cyclists. For a lucky few, Dunlap will coach a cyclocross clinic at the Mass Hospital School in Canton. Later, she will host a fundraising dinner at the Mount Vernon restaurant in Somerville. The dinner coincides with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The last time Dunlap visited Boston in 2003, it was business as usual for the powerful pro, who took home the win at the annual Gloucester cyclocross race. The Canton Cup cyclocross race, to be held the day after Dunlap's visit, offers all a chance to put their cyclocross skills to the test.
