Help a brother out and enter to win some cool stuff

Robbie Squire is one of the top U23 Mountain Bike racers in the United States who happens to call Utah home. He's a former Junior National Champion and finished 2nd in this years U23 national championship. Not only is he extremely fast on two wheels (he blitzed Millcreek in 39 minutes yesterday) but he's also a nice guy. So where am I going with this? Keep reading...

Thanks to his excellent results, USA Cycling has named Robbie to the U.S. National Team that will be competing at the upcoming Mountain Bike World Championships in Canberra, Australia the first week of September. USA Cycling doesn't cover travel expenses which - as you can imagine - makes it difficult for Robbie to attend.

Thankfully, the organizors of The Tour De Park City have generously donated some awesome swag for a raffle, the procedes of which will go towards helping Robbie get to Australia without racking up a ton of debt.

Reynolds Solitude Wheelset
Garmin 605
Rudy Project Helmet/glasses combo
3 energy packages including hammer heed, pro bars, sportslegs, and gels

Each ticket costs $5 and the raffle will be held in 2 weeks.

Thanks for getting the word out about this. I just donated lunch money to the cause. Wish I could do more.

I too donated lunch money to the cause. Hopefully he can go and represent.

Does this make anyone wonder if we should be racing in USA Cycling events? ICUP races are not. I completely understand not wanting to deal with the all the crap that goes with a sanctioned event but are we hurting our sport?

No, we are growing our sport, what we need to do is reform USA Cycling and get it out from under the cronies.
