PRLog - Mar. 12, 2009 - Lance Armstrong’s first ever Giro d’Italia (Tour of Italy) is being eagerly awaited by Americans and Italians alike. An American father and daughter team, Gene Nacey and Nina Wilczek are so excited, they have formed a grassroots fundraising ride for the LIVESTRONG foundation called the Giretto or “Little Giro”.   They will ride the first five stages of the race in their entirety (all 667 km or 415 miles), on the same days as the race proper, just a few hours ahead of Lance and the pros.  

Organized by cycling website Cycling Fusion, the Giretto d’Italia aims to raise money for the fight against cancer and to show that despite overwhelming odds, ordinary people can train hard and live strong.  The riders are sponsored by contributors for every mile of the 415-mile circuit.  Sponsorship dollars raised through the Cycling Fusion website will benefit LIVESTRONG, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, and cancer research.  

For the opportunistic and dedicated cyclist, this is a chance of a lifetime to ride with Lance, be inspired, and inspire others in the process.  This will help set them up for a stronger than ever season of riding and racing.

Riders are being required to pay their own travel expenses and raise a minimum of $1,000 each for LIVESTRONG. Transportation, daily massages and all logistics will be handled by Cycling Made In Italy, Viva Travels & Global Ride Productions.

All of the riders training and ride information is being blogged at Cycling Fusion Fanatics.  Find out more information about the Giretto or support the event by making a donation at www.cyclingfusion.com.
