Tour of Missouri final stage. Heather poses with Italian Francesco Chicchi before the stage start in KC. After meeting up with Jim Allen of CycleSmith who paints the Mondonico and Torelli frames we visited the team assembly area before the stage start. After encouraging Chicci with the traditional good luck "in bocca al lupo" (in the wolf's mouth) he replied "crepe lupo" (I kill the wolf) in typical fashion and was off to the start. We walked around the circuit after the race began---more about that next time.
