Did u know Amber Neben was a Husker?

Amber Neben - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
"She attended the University of Nebraska
on a track and cross-country scholarship,
but developed stress fractures from running. Forced to curtail her running activities, she became an undergraduate assistant coach with the distance running program. Only subsequently, after graduating from college, did she take up the sport of cycling."

Oh.... and who is Amber Neben you say? She's a rider for Team Flexpoint and is currently ranked 13th in the world UCI standings, which makes her the highest ranked women's rider from the USA.

I do know that poem.

Amber Neben was a Husker
Rode a bike as fast as a twister
When the boys came out to ride
they fell off her pace and cried
she rode on to fame and ranking
after givin' the men a spankin'

I think I could jump rope to that too! :^)
