Many of you may have already seen this posted by Dorothy Wong on Facebook, I thought it was cool enough to share here. Alexis Ryan, a Southern California girl making a name for herself over in Europe, was captured in a photo, during the women's GP Samyn, by Geert Nachtergaele. I have captured Alexis numerous times in photographs largely because she (and her sister) are so often seen at the front of the field during local cyclocross and road races. In the photo below, Alexis is third in line, wearing what I assume is the red/white/blue jersey of the United States developmental team.
How great is that. To be young and talented... and racing in Europe.
