Boels Dolmans Cycling team supports Pink Ribbon
The Dutch Boels Dolmans Cycling Team supports breast cancer research during the coming Amstel Gold Race on April 21.
1 in every 7 Dutch women gets diagnosed with breast cancer.
The Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team, for three years in a row the best professional female cycling team in the world, identifies itself with the impact and consequences of this disease. For this reason, the team joins the fight against this terrible disease and takes up its social responsibility as a professional organization in (women’s) pro-cycling.
With the Pink Ribbon organisation, the team has found an excellent partner, which finances projects and scientific research focused on treatment, after care and long-term effects of breast cancer, aimed at a longer and better life for the (ex-) breast cancer patient.
“Ofcourse we will do this! This was our first reaction when team manager Erwin Janssen explained us the idea of this special Pink Ribbon campaign”, according to Dutch and former world champion Chantal Blaak.
“We discussed the topic later with a couple of riders. Almost everyone knows somebody near, being family or friends, who is affected by breast cancer. All extra aid and help to beat this deadly disease is a bonus. We are very determined to make this a success and attract as much attention as possible on the Pink Ribbon campaign and eventually collect as much money as possible.”
Together with Pink Ribbon and the team partners such as Specialized, Santini cycling wear, Wealer (Audi cars), ROKA sunglasses, Tacx and MH-Roadstyling (wrapping) the team will organize a special campaign in the fight against breast cancer. In this respect the team will ride the Amstel Gold Race completely in Pink from the bikes to the shirts and team cars. An online auction with unique Boels-Dolmans gear, including the original Specialized bikes where the team rode Amstel Gold Race on, will be organized. Finally, all the eventually won prize money by the Boels-Dolmans team during the Amstel Gold race will also be donated to Pink Ribbon.
The team calls upon all cycling fans, (fellow-) sporters, sponsors and everybody who supports the Boels-Dolmans team and has a warm heart for the work of Pink Ribbon to support this campaign and bid on unique objects through this site: http://www.boelsdolmansforpinkribbon.com

Together we can fight this disease effectively and make the difference.
