Ride am Rhein

Jens Voigt and Erik Zabel passed through Düsseldorf today in between races to participate in a charity event organised by former cycling pro Sven Teutenberg and his wife Suzan. Despite the wet weather, hundreds of people with bikes lined up for the Ride am Rhein (www.therideamrhein.de/ ), to ride between 25 and 110 km raising money for Regenbodenland Kids Hospice in Düsseldorf and the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Current Handcycling World Champion Monique Van de Vorst also turned up to ride the 110km event, which she said was good training for the World Championships coming up in 4 weeks. I have to do well there," she told Cyclingnews. "I want to keep this [rainbow] jersey."
