After a terrible bicycle crash that left her in critical condition, it was uncertain whether Ana, who finished the 2020 2VS event, would even be able to walk again, much less pedal. But having an indefatigable and unbeatable head and heart, Ana slowly made a complete recovery. The 2VS not-for-profit sponsored the surgery on her upper lip, stem cell replacement for the parts missing in her upper jaw and two implants added to fix her broken teeth. Ana is not only back on her bike, but ultra cycling stronger than ever. The 2VS community of 2021 riders are proud to have been a part of helping Ana’s road to recovery in a small way. We hope to see her pedaling through south Italy once more flashing her gorgeous smile.
