Quick update.

I just finished up three days of racing in Saint Louis at Tour de Grove. This was quite a different race experience than the previous weeks of NCC racing at Speed Week.

I hit the ground in a crash on the first night, but am ok for the most part. The second day was an NCC race so I grabbed a lot of points but could not quite pull off the finish.

The 3rd and final day was one of the hardest days of racing. I chose to be supper active and aggressive, working to create a break or go with a move that made one. This made for a very hard, active race. I was in just about every move except the one that stuck (always the story). My positioning for the finial lap was good for the final sprint but I wanted to try something new and attacked early hoping to stay away, but was caught at the line.

Over all I was happy with how I raced. I may not have made the podium but I walked away with the experience of what I did right, and more importantly what I did wrong.

I am out side of Chicago now for a week of training with awesome teammates, and being hosted by one of our incredible sponsors Enzo's http://www.enzoscyclingproducts.com and will be racing in one of our other sponsors' races, the PSIMET fox river omnium http://www.psimetracing.com/fox-river-omnium/ .

I am a female athlete with a dream. That dream is to be a full time professional cyclist. 


I race for Vanderkitten, a women's professional team based in the US. Vanderkitten has given me amazing support over the years, helping me on the journey to realize my potential as a professional female athlete. 

As an athlete, I have transformed my life, made sacrifices, have overcome injury, and have learned, it takes a strong support system to chase this dream. This journey has taught me to be strong, but also know when I need to ask for help. 

Going in to the 2013 season, I do not want financial restrictions to be what limits my growth. This is why I am reaching out to all of you for a small donation to help me get to races around the country, and other parts of the world. 

By getting to races, I will be able to further develop, meet challenging competition, provide Vanderkitten and our sponsors with the exposure they deserve for believing in me, and women's cycling, and hopefully inspire young women to chase after their own dreams. 

Thank you
Starla Teddergreen
