Team CSC/Saxo Shares Tour With Youngsters

On Thursday Tour de France was visited by a group of young people, which means a great deal to Team CSC Saxo Bank. It was a fantastic opportunity for a bunch of young South African boys and girls from the charity project Velokhaya to visit the Tour and see what goes on around the greatest cycling race in the world.

Team CSC Saxo Bank, CSC and Cervélo have been the biggest contributors to the project over the last couple of years and it's been great for both the riders as well as everyone else around these organizations to be able to give these young people from some of the poorest neighborhoods in South Africa such a unique experience.

Credit is also due to the Tour-societé ASO, which had organized a tour for the Velokhaya kids and the day-to-day leaders of the project round the so-called "Tour-Village" in Thursday's starting town of Bourg-d'Oisans. They got to see the entire Tour caravan as well as the “Village” where they could visit the various stalls.

An ASO-official shoed the Velokhaya delegation around and afterwards they went to the Team CSC Saxo Bank bus, which they got a chance to check out as well before accompanying the riders to the sign-up area. It provided a great deal of media attention when the riders showed up with a large group of kids in tow and it's no secret that the attention is very welcome indeed as it can hopefully provide some much needed support for the project.
