Missy Giove
#1
For those who remember her ..Missy "the missile" Giove is around the MTB camp at Windham this weekend for the DH.
I heard a rumour she could be running but i doubt it ,,thought she was still under some kind of arrest until at least next year..

ok ..i was wrong ..she IS racing!!!
Apparently her civil partner (wife) has got cancer and wants to see her race ..so she has been granted permission.
she hasn't rode competitively for years and qualified today 17th!!
For those who don't know who she is.. one word springs to mind ...Legend ..

Great news that's she's back racing, wonder if she's still wearing her lucky dead piranha around her neck? Best of luck to her.

I missed her run, that is awesome! And the bike was rented, so completely standard!

it wasn't rented ..someone sorted it out for her an a few things like the rear derailleur, tires and pedals were swapped out.
my link on the above post tells us all about the bike ..
