Katina Takes the Swandrome – Sat, Sept 29

October 5, 2007

She may be humble, but our new NY Bella has style and speed. (Check out the polka-dot socks) She claims it was another tough race for her and that she was caught between two women with 4 laps to go, when her former teammate from the old MinM team did drop off, and Katina had to attack on the last half lap, managing to squeeze out a win by a few seconds. That’s all you need!

Good luck in Cooperstown for race #3 in the series, and keep us posted!
