Slipstream Sports will be hosting a fundraiser for its junior cycling team, 5280/Felt at the Denver restaurant Table 6 on August 19. The event, which will be attended by riders and staff of Team Garmin-Chipotle and Team 5280/Felt, will commence with a rose champagne toast to pay homage to the Maglia Rosa and will include a five course meal accompanied by unique artisanal wines correlating with the regions of the Tour de France. Only 50 tickets are available for the event.
The evening will include an auction of Christian Vande Velde's autographed pink jersey from the Giro d'Italia as well as items from this year's Tour de France. In addition, fans will be given the opportunity to sample wines from regions visited in the 2008 Tour de France, selected by Todd Mathis, National Sales Manager for Martine's Wines and a Masters of wine candidate, and Slipstream CEO and wine geek extraordinaire, Jonathan Vaughters. Members of Team 5280/Felt and Team Garmin-Chipotle presented by H30 that are tentatively expected to be in attendance include Danny Pate, Will Frischkorn and Jonathan Vaughters.
"When I originally started what is now Team Garmin-Chipotle, I made a commitment to developing the next generation of cycling champions. Team 5280 gives young riders the unique opportunity to train alongside the pros and benefit from their experience and knowledge," said Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports and Director Sportif of Team Garmin-Chipotle presented by H30. Team 5280 takes its name from Denver's 5280 Magazine, which in 2003 was the first sponsor of the program that became Slipstream Sports.
Tickets for the event are available for purchase for $500 each and may be obtained by calling 303-444-7500 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, go to: www.slipstreamsports.com.
