6 El Grupo Riders Need Your Help Getting to Tour de l'Abitibi
You can help make this unprecedented opportunity a dream come true
Six El Grupo youth cyclists were recently selected to represent the United States at the Tour de l’Abitibi (Quebec, Canada) in July. The Tour de l’Abitibi
is the largest, most prestigious junior’s 17-18 race in the Americas and is only one of 7 competitions in the circuit of the UCI Junior Nations Cup to be presented outside of Europe.
El Grupo has never had so many riders participate and qualify for the race.
“The selection camp they attended in Flagstaff with USA Cycling in June had fierce competition that flew in from across the country,” El Grupo director Daniela Diamente said. “It is unprecedented that this many young riders from the same town and the same team make this selection.”
The riders selected are: Daniel Son, Nicholas Harris, Keenan & Ben Duncan, Christian Santa Cruz, and Logan Boyd.
“Each of these young men are ‘pure products’ of El Grupo’s system having been introduced to road bikes for their first time through us,” Head Coach Ignacio Rivera de Rosales said.
“Each of these young men have worked tremendously hard over the years, overcoming many obstacles in their lives, and have found a path through El Grupo and riding bikes,” “And they are fast!” But we need your help to get them to Canada!
The trip to the race will cost on average $3,500 for each rider. They have all set up crowdfunding sites
to help raise money, and El Grupo is committed to raising the additional funds. We need YOU to help us make sure they all get there!
DONATE NOW and add "Canada" as the purpose of donation. Simple as that.
Meet these young men below. Not one of them can do this without your support.
