Catching Up With The Kittens

Reading, PA (June 5, 2008) - It has truly been some time since I posted something about our friend Liz Hatch (Team Vanderkitten).

Last year, Liz was the face of Vanderkitten Racing as she traveled and raced solo to represent the grassroots clothing company. But by the fall of 2007, Vanderkitten Racing began to morph into a full fledge US Cycling NRC racing team replete with sponsors, coaches, and a bevy of new administrative logistics.

Racing on BH Connect bikes, the first-year team has begun to get its bearings on the professional circuit, and garnered some respect along the way.

In two FLICKR-styled story boards (5 photos or less), here is a recap of Team Vanderkitten's day at the 2008 Commerce Bank Reading Classic.

"Preparation"


"Opportunity"


Results
13th - Melissa Sanborn
16th - Flavia Oliveira
19th - Jennifer Wilson
32nd - Liz Hatch

Jennifer Tilley and Leigh Valletti will round out the Northern California based squad as they make an assault on the Commerce Bank Liberty Classic on Sunday, June 8th.

Have you noticed that the girls that win, don't flash us their boobs? Anyway, keep losing Vanderkitten so we can keep seeing your boobies! Any press is good press ... so they say.

Hey Len, thanks so much for the news on my VKat girls! I've been way outta the loop for awhile now and had been wondering about their progress. Glad to see ALL the STRONG, SMART, BEAUTIFUL, SEXY, KICK ASS VKats doing well!

I was there with Granny today and let me tell ya, those Kittens put on an impression show. Any guy or gal that can take the 17% "Wall" with a 110 degree heat index over several laps is a winner in my book every day.

great seeing you out there L.

what a week. and what satisfaction with how the VKs ended it. Total success. I can't wait to see what gets built into the VK system and see what kind of potential these women really have.

great riders, great women.

thanks again,
