Fight Cancer, Win a Signed Lance Armstrong Poster

To celebrate the start of the 97th Tour de France, I am pleased to announce a great contest that will benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation, a cause near and dear to my heart.  Graham Watson, legendary photographer of cycling’s most storied event, has graciously donated a signed poster of Lance Armstrong, taken during Stage 16 of the 2004 Tour.  That was the individual time trial (ITT) from Bourg d’Oisans to L’Alpe d’Huez on July 21 ,2004.  As cycling fans know, the 21 hairpin turns of the hors categoire (beyond classification) L’Alpe d’Huez is one of the most difficult and iconic climbs in all of cycling.  Lance was already wearing the Yellow Jersey and would win his 5th Tour de France 4 days later in Paris.

This is a photo of the actual poster you could win.

 

Here’s a close-up of Graham Watson’s signature on the poster:

 

To be entered into the random drawing for this poster, all you have to do is contribute $10 to my LIVESTRONG fundraising account. For every $10 you contribute, you get 1 entry.  The contest runs through the end of the Tour de France, on July 25.  I’ll announce the winner and notify him or her by July 31.  It could be YOU!
