If you are a cyclist, you probably know Davis Phinney the Olympic medalist, Tour de France stage winner, and Coors Classic champion. If you were one of his rivals back then, you know he wasn’t to be trifled with in the last 500 meters. The guy can sprint! If you or a loved one currently lives with Parkinson’s disease, you probably know the Foundation that he started in 2004 following his own diagnosis. Not only does he continue to be a role model in the cycling community, he is an inspiration for the 1.5 million people living with the disease. I rarely ask for anything, but PLEASE help support the Foundation by donating here. It is fast, easy, and secure!
Starting Aug 22nd the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, the greatest race to hit Colorado soil since the Coors Classic, begins. Our goal is to match the $20,000 that the UPCC has donated as a challenge grant to the Davis Phinney Foundation. I will be providing daily behind the scenes views of the race on this site, as well as, real time iPhone Photos via twitter, facebook, and google+. All I am asking for this type of coverage is that you donate to the Foundation and take the challenge! If you want an all access pass to the greatest race in recent Colorado history, just make a donation and follow the race here…
