The Joys of Vegas

It's great to be home!  Vegas is quite the place.  If you have never experienced the thrill of big city, big boobs - you need to visit Vegas.  I am sure that there are plenty of amazing things in Vegas, but we were too busy to see any of them. 
The bike show was absolutley awesome.  It was really exciting to see that we (Kelson, Bella Rosa) are right there with the rest of them - minus the millions of extra dollars for advertising and marketing.  Someday soon! 

My greatest moment came when I met up with Eddie Merckx.  I currently have a large autographed framed picture of him hanging in my dining room area.  I think he's pretty rad.  He even took the time to sign my new book "The Spring Classics".  Just when I thought it couldn't get any better . . . . .

I attended my first professional cyclo-cross race.  It was a true nail bitter.  The French Pro won by a split hair.  I just can't say how extremely amazing it was.  They also had a pro women's race.  Women are tough.  Loved every minute of it.
 I forgot to mention that I left the three kidos in Southern Utah with my mother-in-law.  They had so much fun ropin' cows and hanging out.  First time I have been without them for more than a day in 12 years.  We were able to fit in some hiking and petro finding. 
It's always nice to go visit new places and see new things.  I learned a lot in the bicycle world, but it's always nice to come home.
HOME SWEET HOME!  Now, off to build some bikes.

Welcome to a new attitude in women's cycling and a first in women's specific titanium and steel custom bikes. We know females....because we are females. All women share a common interest. We want to feel comfortable, confident, and strong on our bikes. We also want to look good while riding hard. At Bellarosa we build bikes to fit you using only the finest materials. Our bikes our built in house one at a time from start to finish. 100% handbuilt in the U.S.A. So guess what? We no longer have to ride boy bikes. It's alright to want to ride a bike designed specifically for you. At Bellarosa we can build your dreams.
