Fancy a new top end Trek Madone 6.9SSL, one careful owner, and all you have to do is make a contribution to charity? Well your luck could be in because Trek and Livestrong have announced that they will be auctioning off six Team RadioShack bikes come the end of this week's Amgen Tour of California. The money raised will go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation to help fund its anti-cancer activities.
Finally done some work on my blog, there is a post about the Tour Down Under and this one about 2011 Team kit.
We did this in the blog last year but everyone else has jumped on and done it already in 2011... I suppose I should be sharper and stop working/preparing to be a Dad for 5 minutes
But hey! why change a winning formula.. so what does everyone think of the 2011 kits then?
It pains me to say it but the best of the lot for me has to been Radioshack...
Lance Armstrong’s return to triathlon, the sport in which he competed before launching his cycling career, has been postponed as a result of a knee injury, with the seven-time Tour de France winner pulling out of an event in New Zealand next month.
Australian sprinter Robbie McEwen and South Africa’s Robbie Hunter have managed to secure a new team for the 2011 following the UCI’s decision not to award a Professional Continental licence to Pegasus Sports, which they were due to ride for next season, with Team RadioSchack confirming that it had signed the pair.
Lance Armstrong’s last overseas race as a professional will be at the Tour Down Under in South Australia.
It will be Armstrong’s third time at the Adelaide-based event which has been on the ProTour calendar since 2008.
Armstrong launched his comeback to professional cycling at the 2009 Santos Tour Down Under, and returned in 2010 to debut his new team, Team RadioShack.
Cycling’s governing body, the UCI, has announced that it plans to initiate disciplinary proceedings against Team RadioShack following the delay to the start of Sunday’s final stage of the Tour de France when its riders lined up wearing special black jerseys publicising Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong charity instead of their usual red and silver outfits.
Lance Armstrong may have won more stages of the Tour de France in the post-war era than anyone else except Eddy Merckx and Bernard Hinhault, and his RadioShack team may boast some big names in Andreas Kloden, Levi Leipheimer and Janez Brajkovic, but it was the less heralded Sergio Paulinho who this afternoon claimed the American outfit’s first victory in cycling’s most famous race on Stage 10 into Gap.
