[handcyclists] USHF Season Kicks Off Soon. . . .
- Howdy handcyclists. . . .
Ii just realized this list was here.
I just wanted everyone to know that the USHF has confirmed the first
few events of the season.....and they are biggies!
1. The Lance Armstrong BMC Criterium and Ride for the Roses
April 7-9, 2000 -- Austin, Tx
2. The Xcelerate Twilight Criterium & Road Race (formerly Golden Pantry
Twilight). April 29-30, 2000 - Athens, GA
Both events are about the biggest thing to happen to handcycling
*ever*! The Lance Armstrong foundation has graciously taken us under
their wing to help promote Lance's "Live to Ride" campaign. The weekend
features a *twilight* criterim on Saturday, 4/8/00, and a recreational
ride (10,25,50 or 100 miles) on Sunday, 4/9/00. In addition, the USHF
will have a booth during the weekend and St. David's Rehab center in
Austin will host a clinic on Saturday morning. Sunday's ride will
feature all top pro U.S. Cyclists like Lance Armstrong and Tyler
Hamilton....in addition to past cycling greats like Miguel Indurain.
All handcyclists are invited to participate and go for a ride with the
The Xcelerate Twilight in Athens is brought to us by FEI Velo, who have
promoted handcycling at their event (which features 30,000-40,000
screaming fans) for the last 4 years. This year promises to showcase
handcycling once again in "the biggest bike race in America."
