Danish Tour de France king of the mountains, Michael Rasmussen, is putting up a complete cycling outfit with his autograph for auction to support the victims of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans. The outfit is similar to the one Michael Rasmussen wore when he won the mountains competition in this year's Tour de France, and it consists of a jersey, cycling shorts, gloves and leg warmers with the characteristic polka dots.
All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the International Red Cross' fundraising for the victims of New Orleans. Read more about the disaster and the fundraising at www.redcross.org/.
