Fan Frenzy - winning a trip to the TDF

A cyclist from Virginia won a trip to the Tour de France
Liquigas-Cannondale conducted a contest for 1 cyclist to win an all-expense paid behind-the-scenes trip to the 2011 Tour de France with the Liquigas-Cannondale team + a new bike. I guess these contests actually pan out. Enjoy the story and videos of Joe Praino, a regular Joe from Virginia. Facebook fans of the bicycling manufacturer Cannondale and Peloton Magazine voted him the winner of the contest in early June.  
Upon saying goodbye (in video part II), I could swear the Liquigas guys said "see you in Colorado"!
Thanks to a friend who sent me these videos, I hadn't seen them before.
