Thanks to all who participated in our online auction of Lance Armstrong memorabilia! It ran from July 13 through the 25, right in the middle of the excitement of the Tour de France. We were excited that so many people found items they just had to have, including signed, framed jerseys and a signed helmet. The centerpiece of the auction, a beautiful limited edition Trek Madone, donated by Bicycle Sport Shop of Austin and autographed by Lance, was won by none other than BikeTexas board member Dr. Bill Shea! Bill has indicated that far from displaying it on a wall, after having the autograph protected he plans to ride the bike himself. We at BikeTexas are anxious to see the bike in action, and possibly convince Bill to let us take a spin on a Tour de France-caliber bicycle!
Thanks again for those who bid, to Bicycle Sport Shop for donating the bike, and to the American Society of Clinical Oncologists Cancer Foundation for working with us in this fun fundraising event.
