Ryder Hesjedal 2010 Tour de France Jersey c/w Race Numbers Intact

Number 54, Ryder Hesjedal riding to 7th in GC at the 2010 Tour de France
UPDATED: Ryder Hesjedal Jersey Auction is now live on eBay.

Ryder Hesjedal of Garmin Transitions placed seventh overall at the 2010 Tour de France and delivered the best result by a Canadian in the Tour since Steve Bauer of Fenwick, Ont., finished fourth in 1988.

Ryder has generously donated a jersey from the Tour with race numbers still intact to support the Journey Home and our beneficiary F Cancer. Stay tuned for details of the on-line auction we will be hosting for your opportunity to own this piece of Canadian cycling history and support the development of early detection education programs (did you know 90% of cancers are curable if they are caught in Stage 1 -- that's huge).

Ryder's Personalized Race Numbers still pinned.

Christian Meier rides with a Cause

Most of the cyclists at BC Superweek would love nothing more to wear Christian Meier’s Garmin-Transitions jersey, and why not? It represents an ascent to the Pro Tour, the top level of the sport, the chance to ride at the top events all over Europe, and to race against and with the world’s best at the three Grand Tours, including teammate Ryder Hesjedal’s current headline making run at the Tour de France.

Yet Meier will not be wearing the famous orange-and-blue argyle kit of Garmin-Transitions when the 31st Tour de White Rock kicks off with the HIllclimb on Friday night -- he’ll leave that honor for Pro Tour teammate Svein Tuft. Meier will instead wear a simple but stylish black and white jersey, with the words “F--- Cancer” blaring boldly across his chest. Like the “last chance” tattoo inside his left forearm, the jersey is a tribute to the brother he lost to brain cancer last year.

It’s also a commitment to raise awareness about prevention, particularly among young people.

“There just doesn't seem to be a huge push to cancer awareness and prevention, especially with the younger demographic, which is what F Cancer is trying to do,” said Meier. “Even just the name grabs the attention of younger people – and everyone else for that matter.”
