Andy Hampsten and a host of other racing and industry leaders are in town to ride to support Andreas Knickman, son of fellow 7-11 rider Roy Knickman, in his battle against cancer at the 2nd Annual Mike Nosco Memorial Ride the following day. The ride starts at 9 am on Wednesday, November 3rd, with an 8 am check-in, at 250 Reino Road in Newbury Park. All riders are welcome at both events.
We spoke with Tom Kattus from Campagnolo North America this morning and he described to us some of the amazing raffle items being donated by Specialized, Trek, Cannondale, Zipp, Orbea, Clif Bar, GoPro and many others. Rumor has it Andy is also throwing in a $3700 Italian bike tour with his company Cinghiale Cycling Tours. The industry support for the Mike Nosco ride and the outpouring of support of the Knickman family has been unbelievable, says Tom Kattus. We need people to come out and support these events to help honor Mike Nosco and to also help support the Knickman family.
Both events are open to riders of all levels. Please check out the raffle and auction items now or make a donation of any size to www.mikenosco.com
