Hockey fights cancer ( Bike race pledge drive)
Firstly, I hope it's okay that I post this here. I checked the rules and did not find anything, but if I missed anything, I appologise.

Some of you might remember from last year how Mats Zuccarello supported the Norwegian NGO "Hockey against cancer". The organization focuses on raising money in the hockey community to make life easier for children struck by the horrible decease. The organization is often promoted by Zuccarello and former NHL tough guy Ole Kristian Tollefsen.

Last year the organization started the tradition of attending the annual bike race named "The Great Trial of Strength" from Trondheim in the middle of Norway to the capital Oslo. The race is 540 kms (app. 350mi).

Along with severeal pro/semi-pro athletes, coaches and GM's, yours truely will take part this year. I will be dragging my overweight behind across the Norwegian mountains, hoping to raise as much as possible.

If you would like to contribute, you should be able to donate using paypal (will add pp id later) or bank transfer. Most of those who donate, pledge a certain amount pr km I manage to go, but any donation will of course be most welcome.

The fastest riders (pro cyclists) finish in 12-13 hrs, while last years team all took between 25 and 27. Our target this year will be around 22 hrs (15 mph avg).

I hope I survive. If not: It's been fun, gents!
