What's Cool In Road Cycling

Denver Riders Support LAF With Special Jersey

In addition to being one of the most competitive sports in the world, cyclists also are among the most community oriented. A group of riders in Denver and Phoenix have produced a limited edition cycling jersey to raise funding for the Lance Armstrong Foundation. The idea started when the Ron McComber and his friends Todd Runck and Stuart Laing rallyed their buddies to join the Ride For The Roses this October, partly in celebration of Laing’s 10 cancer free years.

Says Laing: “Back in December, 92 after racing in the Desert Princess Duathlon championships, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease. I underwent 12 sessions of chemotherapy and 4 weeks of radiation. To commemorate my 10 years of being cancer free, the chaps I ride with decided we should ride the Ride for the Roses in Austin, Texas this October. Our friend Ron organized the jerseys and we are selling them. All the proceeds are tax deductible and all go to the LAF.org. The jersey does state it benefits the LAF.org and also says on the back “dedicated to Stuart Laing, cancer survivor”.

Buy A Jersey, Support the LAF
McOmber has produced 300 bicycle jerseys that can be purchased through donation to the Lance Armstrong Foundation. A minimum donation of $50 is required for each jersey; a $75 to $100 donation is requested to help achieve our goal of $20,000. All proceeds will go the Foundation. The jerseys were designed by IllumeCreative and manufactured by Voler, at a discounted cost, and are available in small, medium, large and extra large. The fund raising sponsors include Shea Homes, GTL Thompson, and Wheat Ridge Cyclery.

If you would like to help support the Foundation you can purchase a jersey at Wheat Ridge Cyclery, or by mailing a check made out to Lance Armstrong Foundation to:
