Sarah and Chipo
Sarah Keller gets a taste of fame posing with Mario Cippollini after the Tour de Georgia in April.

Long standing team sponsor, PowerBar, has once again agreed to provide BTT members with literally thousands of bars, gels, and for the first time - Endurance and Recovery drinks. Keep your eyes open at training weekend and throughout the season for drink mix samples. As always, please feel free to contact Steve Upson at directly with any product requests. The "back porch" Brighton pickup system seems to work well.
