Your Chance To Win: Jasper Stuyven’s Segafredo/Trek Madone
E-Bay auction for the Mike Nosco Memorial Challenge
If there is one ride that the RBA crew is committed to each year, it’s the Mike Nosco Memorial Bike Ride No, we don’t always ride the entire course, but we do our best to ride as much as possible. Why the lack of fortitude? In short, it’s hard, really hard, probably one of the hardest 80 miles you’ll ever ride. But, whether we ride the 60 or the 80 mile course, it remains the most rewarding ride on our calendar for two reasons. 1. Event founder Jack Nosco is not the sort of man you say no to because he is so full of good intention and purposeful effort. 2. The money raised goes to help people who really need the help.
Over the years the “Nosco Ride” has only grown in size, support and relevance…that’s one reason why Trek Bikes has stepped up and donated a factory Segefredo race bike ridden by Jasper Stuyven for an eBay auction.
Beyond the bike auction though, there is the ride itself. For anyone looking for a true challenge that will physically leave you in the hurt locker, but emotionally and spiritually moved, this is the event you don’t want to miss. We hope to see as many of you as possible at the start line on November 3.
