Papp and Olson team up to support immigrant advocacy

Cyclingnews diarist and elite cyclist Joe Papp is teaming up with Aaron Olson to support the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center through a charity raffle. Papp, who raced with Olson as a member of the USA team at the 2005 Vuelta a Cuba, is married to Cuban Yuliet Rodríguez Jiménez - herself a world-class road and track cyclist.

Olson, who will ride for T-Mobile in 2007, has donated an autographed Saunier Duval-Prodir team jersey from his personal collection, which, along with two copies of Endurofit's "The Next Level Strength and Conditioning for Endurance Athletes" DVD, will be raffled-off on December 18th. A maximum of 250 raffle "chances" will be offered for a donation of $4.95 (US) each, and winners will be chosen at random. More information can be found on Papp's website,
