Living Strong Despite the Rain in the Tour of Hope
submitted on October 8, 2005
A group of 67 cyclists participated in the finale of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Tour of Hope® a bicycle ride across the United States led by Lance Armstrong, the seven-time winner of the Tour de France.
The Team MBA riders, along with nearly 1,500 other participants, had intended to join the Tour of Hope team October 8 as it neared Washington, D.C. at the end of a nine-day, cross-country ride that began September 29 in San Diego, California. Record-setting rain, however, forced the last-minute cancellation of the bike ride finale, which was to have concluded with a ceremony and other activities on the Ellipse, the national park adjacent to the White House and the Washington Monument.
Members of the Team MBA contingent that participated in the Tour of Hope represented several Washington-area business schools, including those at American University, George Washington University, and Georgetown University. Other business schools represented included the London Business School, HEC Paris, Rotterdam School of Management, Yale University, UCLA, the University of Tulsa, the University of Denver, and the University of Rochester.
