 More promotional propaganda…I know…but if you’re wanting to go see the Giro, witness Lance’s first participation in it and ride the course, here you go.

Trek Travel, the only cycling tour operator endorsed by Lance Armstrong, the Official Tour Operator for Team Astana and a Trek Bicycle partner, is ready to take cycling enthusiasts of all riding abilities to see Lance Armstrong in a career first as he races the Giro d’Italia

2009 will be a historic year in professional cycling, as seven-time Tour de France winner, Lance Armstrong, comes out of retirement to race on the international stage. For the first time in his career he’ll race two of the toughest stage races back-to-back, beginning with the Giro d’Italia. Enthusiasts can join Trek Travel on one of two styles of trips: the Giro d’Italia or the Giro with Team Astana.

According to Armstrong, there is no better way to see him compete than with Trek Travel. “Just as Trek understands what it takes to build the world’s best bikes, Trek Travel clearly understands what it takes to provide the world’s best cycling vacations.”

“What Trek Travel guests get,” says Trek Travel President, Tania Worgull, “is the opportunity to live the dream; the dream of riding like a pro and of experiencing the competition in VIP style and proximity. Our cycling connections and the in-depth knowledge of our guides get guests to the front of the line and behind the scenes. Guests catch all the action because they don’t have to wrestle their way in to see it.”

Every Trek Travel guest will ride sections of the race course, only hours before the riders, on the same bikes as Team Astana–the Madone. They will see various stages of the race from VIP viewing locations, and they will enjoy the full- support, personalized service and in-depth local knowledge of Trek Travel’s guides.

Guests on the Giro with Team Astana trip enjoy exclusive Astana access. They will wine and dine with Astana team members, as well as other team representatives such as the team’s director Johan Bruyneel, and they will get a sneak peek view of Team Astana’s bus and gear in a private tour by their expert mechanic.

For any cycling enthusiast, this is a vacation of a lifetime.
