Spend the evening with the 2008 Slipstream/Chipotle Professional Cycling Team at the Boulder Theatre in Boulder, Colorado, on November 14, 2007, and you could win something memorable.
The main attraction of the evening will be the introduction of the 2008 team, including an open forum Q & A with the riders. The event will culminate with a live auction, which will include special contributions from David Millar, David Zabriskie, and the Davis Phinney Foundation, an organization designed to accelerate Parkinson's research through collaborative funding, and to explore the positive effects of exercise on Parkinson's patients. All proceeds will benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation. Additional auction items could include:
