The 2016 Easter International Cycling Grand Prix is fast approaching and here at the TTCF we will like you to get a bit more familiar with our featured International cyclists. Our first profile will be of defending Easter Grand Prix Women’s Sprint and Keirin Champion, Dana Feiss (USA). Feiss, a Pan Am Games Bronze Medalist (Keirin), Pan Am Championships Silver Medalist (Team Sprint) and a four-time US National Champion is prepped and ready to return to the Caribbean isle for the Easter Grand prix.
The 26 year old American Speedster will have to bring her full arsenal when she comes up against T&T speedsters such as double Junior Pan American Champion, Kollyn St. George and 2-time Junior Pan Am Medalist, Keiana Lester. In addition, Feiss will also have to contend with teammate Mandy Marquardt fresh off of her 500m, Sprint and Keirin titles at the CONACIP Puerto Rico Grand Prix last weekend and Canadian Krista Ruby who will all be gunning for the top tier of the podium.
