THE LEGENDARY LEIGH DONOVAN TO RETURN TO WORLD CUP RACING
We have just had this super-hot news in that the one and only Leigh Donovan is going to return to World Cup racing...
This may come as a shock to some, but our source let us know that Leigh will be riding "a couple of World Cups and maybe Worlds (champs)". She retired from World Cup racing quite and few years back, concentrating on a new business venture (Tangerine, a clothing boutique) and starting a family...but it seems that racing is in her blood and that she just can't stay away.
For those of you out that there that are a little unsure of who Leigh Donovan is, let me fill you in. She was around during the heyday of downhill racing, regularly battling it out against the likes of Anne Caroline Chausson and Missy Giove. And she was fast...super fast: 1995 World Champion, 2001 World Cup Champion and 9 x U.S. National Champion...none to shabby. At 38 years old she is still going to be a force to be reckoned with...and we can't wait.
