I have a distant memory of Missy Giove who raced for Yeti at some point having a dried piranha around her neck!
Can someone confirm this?I seemed to remember it was one of her pets that passed away and she left it to dry out and then used it as some kind of mascot :lol:
Magazine scan anyone?

No scan I'm afraid, but yes it was definitely true. I think it disintegrated after a couple of years though...

Um...she is Gay and a very nice Gay she is to.
She famously appeared on the cover of a womans Gay mag with just plasters (bandaids) on her nipples.
I allways liked the way she used to say "Go balistic".
Then she seemed to stop when some company began using her slogan.
Perhaps it was Ballistic.

Yeah, it was her pet at college and it was called Gonzo. It was pretty bust up when she rode for Yeti, so I imagine its long gone now.

I seem to remember her losing the Piranha at Fort William - Tony (Mad Cow) knows the story better!
