My name is Lindsey Torgerson. I am duathlete for Team USA focusing on short and long distance events. I am seeking funds to build a new bike for the USAT National Duathlon Championship in Tucson Arizona on October 26th. I have partnered with 2Quik Carbon Technology for them to build me one of the fastest bikes in the world so I can compete for the title of USAT Duathlon National Champion.
As you know at this level of competition all the athletes have rigorous training schedules and diets that keep them in top form for their events. The difference between winning and losing at this level is no longer solely based on fitness, but by determination and equipment. Last year I got second at worlds in Switzerland in the long distance duathlon. For 2013 I have change to short distance because it really shows my strength on the bike leg of the race. Raising the necessary funds for this bike would be an incredibly opportunity to represent my country and team at both the national and world level. The opportunity to work with 2Quik turned out to be great for both of us. I would be riding a full custom painted bike that would really represent Team USA in a positive way. I also really hope to inspire other young women in the sport that hard work and determination will take you far in the sport.
Where the money will go
I have partnered with 2Quik Carbon Technology to build one of the fastest bikes in the world. For this to be possible I am looking to raise $7500. This will cover the entire cost of the new bike and if there is anything left over it will go towards paying my registration for both nationals and worlds.
2012- 2nd at the ITU Duathlon World Championships in Switzerland
