Slipstream opens team launch to the public

Team Slipstream/Chipotle has taken the unusual step of opening its 2008 team launch to the public, with a limited number of tickets available for the event on Wednesday, November 14 at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, Colorado. The event will include a screening of the pilot episode for the team's reality TV show, which will potentially air this year, a short film highlighting the team's history, and a film showcasing the tumultuous career of new signing David Millar.

Fans will have the opportunity to pose questions during an open Q&A forum with riders, followed by an auction with contributions from Millar and fellow Slipstream newcomer David Zabriskie. Additional auction items include a 2008 team edition Felt F1 bike, a Zipp 808 wheelset, and best of all, a year's free burritos from co-sponsor Chipotle.

General admission tickets cost $25 and can be purchased online at All proceeds from the event will benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation, an organisation dedicated to research into Parkinson's disease.
