Marisa is one of the friends I've made here. Quiet, unassuming, and relaxed, she doesn't even seem like a cyclist when you first meet her. Which was the case when I first met her at a Bianchi bike shop, VRMoto, in Verona which she was the co-owner of at the time. I didn't learn until later that she was a full fledged racer that has competed in the women's Giro d' Italia and won major granfondos. She and her business partner have since sold the shop and now she is once again concentrating on racing and winning for the ENJOY TEAM of Verona.
