Obviously we were stoked when Prissy Tomboy contacted us about getting involved with the Cedar Hill Criterium. The passion and confidence was oozing - to create a brand/initiative that helps get girls dis-connected, off the phone/computer and back outside into sport - yeah, that's pretty legit and very very inspiring!
