RAINBOW JERSEY COMING TO AZ!!

Melissa (from Chandler, AZ) won the gold in 4X last week at the World MTB Championships in Italy! FREAKING AWESOME!! She was the only USA rider to bring home a medal this year. Stop by her website and give a fellow Arizonain a pat on the back for a job VERY well done - https://www.melissabuhl.com/ (her email address is at the bottom of the main page)

That's Great! She has worked hard to get there. It takes focus and grit to get there, not just hop on the bike and go fast type of thing. About a year ago, she told me what she was doing to prepare for her racing. It was inspiring, now its very sweet to see a payoff for all that hard work. Congratulations Melissa!!!!

That's awesome! I think she's the only one representing the USA to place in the top 5 this year. It's kinda weird to see a fellow shortbus shuttler winning at the worlds! Congrats!!! :thumbsup:

I grew up racing BMX with Melissa. I can remember going to Nationals with her when we were teenagers, some of my fondest memories are from back then. I'm glad to see she stuck with it and it's brought her great success.
