James Jean gets "ArtStrong"...

In an effort to raise awareness for his LIVESTRONG foundation's endless fight against the cancer burden worldwide, Supertouch buddy LANCE ARMSTRONG has commissioned a series of "Open Roads" street level chalk art installations that began in LA this weekend with the work of nascent art star JAMES JEAN. Attacking the Venice boardwalk on Saturday, Jean quickly grabbed public attention with his incredible yellow chalk mural that in turn inspired over 600 passers-by to pick up chalk themselves and break loose with their own impromptu yellow "street art."

Having just wrapped up his official return to professional racing at this month's TOUR DOWN UNDER in Adelaide, Australia, Supertouch buddy LANCE ARMSTRONG has made one of his TEAM ASTANA racing bikes available for bidding on EBAY, signed by none other than the cycling legend himself. The ultra high-tech exclusive team-issued 56cm TREK MADONE 6.9 PRO in Astana's racing colors featuring Bontrager wheels and SRAM components (currently on display at the Adelaide City Council Tour Village, Victoria Square, Adelaide) would retail for approximately $12,442 USD if one could buy it in a store, and 100% of the funds raised by the eBay auction will be donated by Lance's LIVESTRONG foundation to the CANCER COUNCIL OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Remember, every year almost 7 million people die of cancer worldwide with little end to the killer disease in sight. Cycling fans not crippled by today's economy could do little better with their spare change for such a monumental return. Read more about the cancer burden HERE. Meanwhile, HAVE A LOOK: Read More

To commemorate the LIVESTRONG foundation's most important cycling fundraiser, the RIDE FOR THE ROSES—an annual ride in its 12th year whose participants raise a minimum of $10,000 each to benefit the organization's fight against cancer—Supertouch has paired the event's frontman LANCE ARMSTRONG with artist SHEPARD FAIREY to create some imagery worthy of the challenge. An extremely limited-edition poster bearing Shepard's rendition of Lance on a recent training run for the Tour de France 2009 has been screened as a gift for attending riders at the Austin event while seven handmade fine art renditions of the image signed by both Lance and Shepard will be auctioned off on eBay to benefit the charity at the event's conclusion on October 26th. Stay tuned to ST for more details to come…
