Leipheimer to NorCal CycleFest benefit

Team Astana's Levi Leipheimer will be the celebrity guest host of the NorCal High School Mountain Bike Racing League's annual CycleFest dinner on Saturday, November 8, at the Mill Valley Community Center in California. At CycleFest, Leipheimer will recall stories from his most memorable races, talk about the highs and lows of the 2008 season, and speculate on having Lance Armstrong back in the peloton for 2009. The CycleFest benefit weekend with Leipheimer also includes a Friday night cocktail party on November 7 and a Sunday Group Ride on November 9..

In addition, CycleFest will host its own handmade bicycle show, with bicycles on display from 12 of Northern California's most prominent custom frame builders.

Proceeds from CycleFest ticket sales will go to supporting the Northern California Mountain Bike Racing League. Regular tickets are US$150.00, and Patron tickets, which include a cocktail hour with Levi, are $200.00. For more information and tickets, visit
