Saturday October 15, Exeter NH – It was a very windy day for the inaugural Krempels King of the Road Challenge charity bike ride but that didn’t deter local elite cyclists from turning out en masse to support the cause. FitPlanet was on hand to green the event.
Pro rider Ted King, of the Liquigas-Cannondale cycling team, and Arlon Chaffee of Loco Sports organized the ride to raise money for the Krempels Center, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of people living with brain injury. Joining Ted to lead the ride was brother Robbie King and Liquigas teammate Tim Duggan. Check out an article about the two cyclists and their connection to the Krempels Center here.
Among the few hundred cyclists in the peloton were cycling legend Lyne Bessette and pro triathletes Jarrod Shoemaker and Sarah Groff. Sarah has been named to the 2012 US Olympic team, which will mark a second appearance for her at the Games. And 2008 Olympian Jarrod was named the US Triathlon Elite Race Series Champion earlier this month. The US men’s triathlon Olympic team will be announced next May.
