Get Up Close and Personal With Lance Armstrong

WATERLOO, WI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 1, 2005 -- When it comes to getting all the inside information on Lance Armstrong and the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team, no one does a better job of it than Trek's team Liaison, Scott Daubert. Scott has been the go-to guy for Lance and Trek for the last four years and since 2004 he has been letting the outside world have a rare look inside with his Road To The Tour web column found on the Insider Perspectives page at the Trek Bicycles web site (www.trekbikes.com).

Scott first started working with Lance in 1999 when Lance participated in some mountain bike races with the Trek team. It wasn't until The Lance Chronicles debuted on OLN last year that his close working relationship with the Tour de France winner really came to light.

"From flying in a private jet with Lance to ride in the Canary Islands, to setting up bikes for him at the Tour de France, my job is to relay performance notes from the harsh European race environment back to Trek headquarters. I monitor how the Trek frames and Bontrager components are performing for the team. With that information we can make better products for the team and better products for bike riders everywhere," said Scott Daubert.

Starting this week, Scotty's Road To The Tour web column goes weekly. In his first June installment, he sheds light on some of the latest Trek technology being tested right now in France by Lance and the Discovery Channel team. For anyone who wants the most up to date and inside news on the Discovery squad, Scott Daubert's column is the place to start!
