2011 El Tour Honors Rahsaan Bahati
World-Class Cyclist and Champion of the Kids
The University of Arizona Medical Center 29th El Tour de Tucson presented by CenturyLink was dedicated to Rahsaan Bahati – 2008 US Pro Criterium Champion, seven-time national cycling champion and founder of the Bahati Foundation.
Rahsaan, a pro cyclist since 2001, does work through his non-profit foundation (www.bahatifoundation.org) to inspire and empower underprivileged inner-city youth to rise above their circumstance through the sport of cycling. The world-class cyclist and champion of youth is the epitome of this year’s event theme, “El Tour…all about giving.” Rahsaan was honored at the Dedication Dinner the Thursday before the event.
