Popular race commentator and former pro road racer Bob "Tour Day France" Roll has agreed to shave his head if US$5,000 can be raised for the Livestrong Foundation by February 22, the last day of the 2009 Amgen Tour of California, on behalf of Team Fat Cyclist: Fighting for Susan.

Elden "Fatty" Nelson, who blogs at fatcyclist.com, has partnered once again with Ibis Cycles founder Scot Nicol to raise money on behalf of Nelson's wife Susan, who has cancer.

Simply put, according to Nicol, if folks donate to Roll's Livestrong page and reach $5,000 by Sunday, the loqacious Roll will shave what little hair is on his head. The gapped-tooth former 7-Eleven professional raced alongside 1988 Giro d'Italia winner Andy Hampsten and multiple Tour de France stage winner Davis Phinney.
