Canadian Team Giga-Bike’s fundraising event 'A Day in Yellow' with David Zabriskie (Team CSC) raised $8,365 to help purchase team equipment for the 2006 race season. The event on Saturday, November 19, involved a leisurely 50 km ride with Yellow jersey wearer David Zabriskie through and around Victoria, Vancouver island, B.C., as well as dinner and a movie for the 30 participating persons.
'A Day in Yellow' sold out within weeks, contributing to the financing of the Victorian based development squad. During the event, which also included local professional cyclist Erinne Willock of Team Webcor and Olympic Gold Medal winning triathlete Simon Whitfield, Zabriskie presented a check for $1000 towards the Canadian Cancer Research foundation.
