Pro Cyclist legend, Floyd Landis, led a ride to raise awareness for joint health on Saturday, October 4th on Lake Mary Road. The ride was presented by Smith and Nephew, an orthopedic prosthesis company, and benefited local cycling advocacy organization, Flagstaff Biking Organization. Over 30 individuals came to join the ride. Floyd Landis helped Lance Armstrong win the 2002 Tour de France. In January of 2003, Floyd crashed in training and fractured his hip, badly displacing the head of the femur. In 2006, Floyd’s hip pain increased as he won the inaugural Tour of California, the Paris-Nice stage race, and the 2006 Tour de Georgia. In September of 2006 he received a BHR? Hip prosthesis, made by Smith and Nephew. More photos can be seen at here.
Proceeds from the ride benefitted Flagstaffbiking.org. Thanks Floyd and Smith & Nephew!
