Velo Bellas little future

Katya Baty - Velo Bellas newest Jr. rider (age 7 cat)
2nd place Redlands Crit

This year while the road ladies were racing Redlands Classic we were lucky to meet the Baty family, Jonathan, Michelle, and Katya. Kristin Danielson and myself stayed in their home and found that their 7 year old daughter is a cycling phenom!

Katya rides to school with her mom and dad most every day of the week. The Baty's are avid cyclists and supporters of bikes as year round commuter vehicles.

This year she raced her first time at the Redlands classic crit as a new Velo Bella on a single speed and took 2nd place narrowly losing to another local racer on a geared bike. Katya plans on training all year in prep for next year where she can race in the 8 year old category and take the win this time.

Welcome to the team Katya and good luck!

watch out, because i hear some of the MTB gals might be staying at the Baty's house for Fontana. She might get the idea to sign up for Norba.

Here is your recruit Alex! :)
