One of the cool things about attending a LIVESTRONG Challenge is you never know who you might meet or what new friends you might make. So we’re very happy to tell you that at the Austin Challenge coming up on Sunday, Oct 21 you can ride with some of the best pro cyclists in the world from Team RadioShack Nissan Trek as we welcome:
Markel Irizar (cancer survivor, winner 2011 Ruta del Sol)
Tiago Machado (stage racing specialist)
Ben King (2010 US Pro Champ)
Matthew Busche (2011 US Pro Champ)
and arguably THE most popular rider in cycling today, Jens “Shut up Legs” Voigt!
In addition to these world class cyclists, some of the best up and coming riders from the very successful and aggressive Bontrager-LIVESTRONG team will also be saddling up:
Axel Merckx (Team Director)
Connor O’Leary (cancer survivor)
This is a great opportunity to ride side by side with this amazing riders, and word is that you’ll be able to meet and greet them, too – I suggest you pay close attention to the Mellow Johnny’s web site – emails (just sayin’).
And how do you get to be out and about with the guys? It’s as simple as signing up for the ride, and at just $50 with no fundraising requirement, there’s no good reason not to join in on the fun! You can choose from distances of 18, 60, and 100 miles and then relax with a great after-ride party in the heart of downtown ATX! We look forward to welcome the boys to Austin, and hope you’ll be along for the ride as well.
