Wachovia post-race party and Davis Phinney Foundation live auction
Cyclingnews caught up with our diarist and America's winningest pro rider Davis Phinney at Trenton, where Davis was being interviewed by his old friend Michael Aisner, who is the speaker for the Wachovia Cycling Series. Phinney, who won the final edition of Aisner's much loved race, the Coors Classic in 1988, has spent plenty of time in Philly. Among his palmares is a USPRO championship, when Phinney sported his Captain America colors in 1991-92. Phinney is in town for USPRO Championships post-race party on Sunday in Philadelphia that will feature a Live Auction to benefit his Davis Phinney Foundation, which supports Parkinson's disease research and wellness. Phinney was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson's disease in 2000 and has battled the disease since, launching his foundation, www.davisphinneyfoundation.com, in 2004.
All are welcome at Tir na Nog Irish Bar and Grill at 1600 Arch St in Philadelphia from 8pm to closing for live music, drink specials and a special live auction of autographed team jerseys, Graham Watson prints and other rare cycling memorabilia to benefit Davis Phinney Foundation.
