Phinneys ride for Parkinson's Disease Research

Davis Phinney and his wife Connie Carpenter Phinney will lead the Sunflower Revolution III ride on October 13-15 to support Parkinson's disease research. The third edition of the event raises funds for the Davis Phinney Foundation, which supports Parkinson's disease research at The Neuroscience Institute at the University of Cincinnati/University Hospital and Stanford University. The previous two editions raised $240,000 each.

Sunflower Revolution III includes a dinner gala and auction on Friday, October 13, at the Cincinnati Hilton Netherland Plaza. The auction includes a limited edition, size large, 7-Eleven team jersey manufactured by Descente to commemorate the 20-year reunion of the 1986 cycling team in Palo Alto in June 2006. The 7-Eleven Cycling Team was the first U.S. cycling team to ride in the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia. The jersey is signed by Davis Phinney, Chris Carmichael, Eric Heiden, Doug Shapiro, Tom Schuler, Ron Kiefel, and Jeff Pierce.
