Armstrong gets US Postal Team Back Together for Ride

George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde, Dylan Casey and Armstrong to reunite at the 24 hour MTB Race, Old Pueblo

Race organizer Todd Sadow said that they’re excited to participate. The event is one of the largest of its kind.

“They’re cyclists, as you know, and our event tends to attract that core of mountain biking enthusiasts,” he said. “We’re really excited to have them out there. We pride ourselves on having a good time, and I’m sure they’ll find a way to have a good time with everybody out there.”

Armstrong has been banned for life from competitive cycling since 2012, but continues to ride and train. The ban does not apply to events like 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo.

Old Pueblo is the largest 24-hour mountain bike race in the world and is in its 18th year. The event takes place February 17-19th at Willow Springs Ranch north of Tucson.

The format for a 24-hour race is simple: ride as many laps in 24 hours as possible.

Race categories include individuals, two-person relay teams, and four-person relay teams.
