LightInTheBox.com Launches New Cycling Gear Range for the Tour De France
BEIJING, July 10 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- To give cycling fans a treat during the 96th Tour De France, LightInTheBox.com (http://www.lightinthebox.com/ ) has announced the expansion of their cycling range: including everything from patented CoolMax fabric cycling shorts (http://www.lightinthebox.com/Cycling-Shorts.htm ) to light-weight folding bicycles (http://www.lightinthebox.com/Cycles.htm
). Now global biking enthusiasts can choose cycling gear worthy of the
hallowed Yellow Jersey and get fast-lane delivery direct to their door.
The Tour de France, which this year runs from July 4 to July 26, is
an annual bicycle race that covers more than 3,500 kilometers (2,200
mi) throughout France and bordering countries. The race usually lasts
23 days and attracts cyclists from around the world. The combination of
endurance and strength needed led the New York Times to say in 2006
that the "Tour de France is arguably the most physiologically demanding
of athletic events". The effort was compared to "running a marathon
several days a week for nearly three weeks", while the total elevation
of the climbs was compared to "climbing three Everests". The riders
burn through a staggering 7000 calories a day and getting the intake
right is essential for recovery as there are a sinew-straining 21
stages in 2009. The expectation and excitement for this year's race is
high as Lance Armstrong comes out of retirement to take on cycling's
younger superstars. Armstrong has previously made the race his own,
winning an amazing seven times from 1999-2005.
"Challenging the limits of physical and mental endurance is an
intrinsically human trait," said Kevin Wen, co-founder of
LightInTheBox.com, on the announcement of their latest low-price range
of cycling gear. "We've expanded our sports lines to include
competitively priced cycling jerseys and equipment to offer shoppers a
helping hand in pushing their own limits."
With China well known as the kingdom of bicycles, LightInTheBox.com
uses their unique location to leverage the best deals from local
bicycle manufacturers and source the best quality cycling equipment at
affordable prices. "The Tour de France is a global competition and we
want to provide fans worldwide with the opportunity to join in and
purchase their own hi-tech cycling jerseys or cycling accessories,"
explained Kevin Wen. "Our huge range of gear and new prices mean we can
now offer 'more for the Tour' this year." (http://www.lightinthebox.com/Cycling-Shorts.htm )
