Members of the former U.S. Postal Service pro cycling team will hit Tucson in February as a four person relay team in Epic Rides 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo

The team will consist of Lance Armstrong, George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde, and Dylan Casey. 

“We’re excited for Lance, George, Dylan, and Christian to join us in 24 Hour Town for a Tucson community tradition at the 18th annual 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo presented by Tucson Medical Center,” said Epic Rides’ President Todd Sadow via text message. 

Armstrong is currently banned from participating in USA Cycling sanctioned events, but because 24 Hours in Old Pueblo is not sanctioned, he and his other teammates can participate.
