You may have seen this fast elite Jr's team powering through the masses at the races already. It might surprise you to know that this is their first year. With the help of stellar sponsors, supportive coaches and parents, as well as BRAC's assistance, this team has taken flight. There's one more person that has offered his support to this team: Pro-cyclist Tom Danielson (Garmin Sharp Professional Bike Race Team).

Tuesday, May 20th Tom Danielson will join the Prestige Imports Junior Team for a ride. There will be a meet and greet from 5-5:30 and then a ride led by Tom and the juniors will begin at 5:30-5:45. The ride will start with team-car support at the Prestige dealership. It will proceed through Golden, up Lookout Mountain and back. The team is hoping to raise awareness for Jr's cycling as well as to promote their upcoming fundraiser at REI downtown later this summer.

The Prestige Imports Junior Team fundraiser (date to be determined) plans to set up shop at the downtown REI from 6-8 p.m. They will have Prize drawings for sponsored products throughout the event. Tommy D and the juniors will sit at the head table for a meet and greet (with autograph session) followed by a question/answer session. Again, the goal is to promote the development of junior cycling with the majority of the proceeds benefiting the Prestige Imports Junior Race Team.
