While his former Discovery Channel teammates slug it out with the rest of the ProTour peloton in France this summer, Lance Armstrong will be heading up a LiveStrong team at the popular Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa (RAGBRAI).
Lance Armstrong Foundation webmaster and occasional Cyclingnews contributor Chris Brewer said that "our Team LiveStrong for this years RAGBRAI will be comprised of 100 riders who will ride the 7-day, 472 mile bike ride across the state of Iowa from west to east. To join us, each rider must raise a minimum of $1,000 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. And this amount includes the $125 entry fee for RAGBRAI and one LIVESTRONG cycling jersey."
Interested riders should check out www.livestrong.org/ragbrai but Chris advises that "there are limited slots remaining (and) all registration applications must be received no later than midnight central daylight time Tuesday March 27, 2007."
