Bikin' Cyprus riders Christof Bischof, Michi Weiss and Marios Athanasiades participated in a 100km charity race sponsored by Vereinigte Volksbank in Weil der Stadt in Germany on October 3. Money raised from the event will be donated to children with disabilities.
Some German national road team riders also joined the mix including Stefan Schumacher, who recently finished third at the UCI Road World Championships in Stuttgart, Jens Voigt, two time winner of the Tour of Deutschland and Andreas Klöden who finished (after the disqualification of Floyd Landis) second in the 2006 Tour de France.
"It's great that through our sport we can offer some help to the children that need it," Bischof said after the race. "I hope I will have the chance to help more in the future." The team will participate in another charity event scheduled for Cyprus in the coming weeks.
