TeamVodafone will take on a different challenge this Sunday, competing against some of south east’s most competitive cyclists to raise funds for Queenslander’s suffering from Multiple Sclerosis (MS).

Over 5000 entrants from all across Queensland will partake in Brisbane’s largest charity bike ride – Brissie to the Bay – and champion V8 Supercars’ outfit TeamVodafone has entered 16 of its fittest team members to tackle the 100km challenge.

Riding bikes supplied and custom made by Two3, team manager and cycling tragic Adrian Burgess will be joined by technical director Ludo Lacroix, drivers Craig Lowndes, Jamie Whincup and Andrew Thompson, as well as team members Chris Brady, Chris Hodson, Craig Johnstone, Dan Williams, Dave Lewin, Leigh Crowhurst, Neil Barton, Nick Petron, Steve Banister and Troy Rowan.

The Brissie to the Bay bike ride aims to raise $500,000.00 and provides valuable services to those who need it most.

Team Manager Burgess is looking forward to putting his passion for cycling towards a good cause.

“It’s a good way of combining a hobby and a sport we all love and also raising some money for a great cause,” he said.

“TeamVodafone is always happy to lend a hand wherever we can, especially for a worthy charity like MS Australia – Queensland.”

Multiple Sclerosis is the most common chronic neurological condition affecting young adults for which there is no cure.  The average age of diagnosis is just 30.

Brissie to the Bay starts and finishes at Musgrave Park in South Brisbane this Sunday.
