Amante Coffee in North Boulder is the place to be on Thursday night, Jan. 19 as the Colorado cycling community sends our best young riders to the Cyclo-cross World Championships. The party is open to the public and will raise essential funds to support Alex Howes and Danny Summerhill (junior category), and Troy Wells and Brady Kappius (under 23 category) as they journey to Zeddam, The Netherlands, for the Jan. 28 race.
The festivities begin at 7pm. A $10 dollar donation is required and drinks will be discounted. You'll also get the chance to bid on unique cycling gear and other valuable items in a silent auction. Every dollar raised will go directly to the rider's travel expenses.
These guys are the future of cyclo-cross racing and their continued development depends on traveling to Europe to test themselves against the world. But with limited sponsorship, they and their families face the burden of paying expensive traveling fees. Your donation will ensure they don't miss this critical racing opportunity.
If you can't attend the party, you can still support the riders by making a donation online at: http://www.bikereg.com/events/register.asp?EventID=2869
