I am writing this on my return flight home from Speed Week with my new team for 2017: Papa John’s presented by Trek. (No, no, I am not eating the pizza quite yet but soon they will be introducing a gluten-free option.) Each of the women on my team are really strong riders and I’m leaving the start of our season excited for what is to come.
