Levi Leipheimer loses house in devastating Santa Rosa fire, urges support for people of Sonoma County

Levi Leipheimer: "Fires are still burning.  We are still taking it all in"  

Levi has asked us to pass on this message to everyone:

"Parts of the city are devastated.  Fires are still burning.  We are still taking it all in."

"My house was completely consumed by the fire, but I want everyone to know that I'm safe and OK.  Please send your thoughts and support to the people of Sonoma County."

"Despite the gravity of the situation, this will be a challenge and an opportunity to truly focus our resources and efforts on the support that Levi's GranFondo can give to those affected by the fires." Levi Leipheimer

A fundraising page is being set up for those in need, they will be accepting donations on the website: levisgranfondo.com

Steve Olson one of Levi's Gran Fondo's chief enthusiasts speaks

Stevel Olson has ridden Levi's Gran Fondo more times than we can count, he jotted down this fitting tribute "Just a week-and-a-half ago, I was up in Santa Rosa, in the heart of the area now being destroyed by wildfires, to ride the 9th edition Levi's GranFondo, one of the best events on the international gran fondo calendar. It was a great day, as ever! In addition to being a top cycling event, it's a valuable fundraiser for many local charities in Santa Rosa and Sonoma County."

"Immediately after the finish, Levi Leipheimer and Bike Monkey, the event organizers, announced that for the 10th edition in 2018, Levi's GranFondo would be re-launched as a 3-day festival of cycling and running, with a new start/finish location after 9 years at the Finley Park, Community Center & Aquatic Complex. As part of that, a new logo, of the Levi's GranFondo bear with phoenix wings, was unveiled, accompanied by a quote from William Shakespeare. Nobody at the time could have had any idea of the terrible, prophetic irony of all of this!"

"I'd suggest, however, that it's more than likely to be the destiny of Levi's GranFondo to be at the forefront in helping to heal and rebuild a great community that's been hit incredibly hard by the current disaster. Santa Rosa and Sonoma County will rebuild and, like a phoenix, rise from the ashes once again." Steve Olson
