Lance Armstrong Foundation fundraising member Rusty Wells, in conjunction with Rainbow Cycles of Southern Pines, will host a premiere showing of the MTB documentary "Off Road to Athens" in support of the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The event will take place on August 3, 2006 at the beautiful Sunrise Theater in downtown Southern Pines, North Carolina and will feature a LIVE auction and reception after the show.
Off Road to Athens is a documentary covering the tumultuous path taken by 8 athletes hoping to make the US Mountain Biking Team headed to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. The film is fueled by the high-energy, high-stress world of Professional Mountain Biking but also covers the personal struggles and sacrifices of four men and four women who are vying for only three available spots on Team USA. The viewer is taken on a ride from the jungles of Ecuador to the Highlands of Scotland, from historic Belgium to scenic Canada and many places in between.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.ticketleap.com (keyword "athens"). Cash and check donations will be welcome after the show with all proceeds benefiting the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
