The mother of two children and a touring car-racer, Denise Yeung has an especially a boundless love for Colnago bicycles made in Italy. She has had passion for cycling since she was a little girl, and pedaled for entire afternoons with friends. Today the two wheels have become a “work tool,” in addition to entertainment.
