    Gotta get a road bike to get back into racing (should've never sold my bike[​IMG]), so it's time to sell off some stuff.
    I won this flag at the 2002 US Crit nats at Downers Grove, IL. It's a 3' x 5' nylon flag signed by 20 of the 21 riders from the 2002 United States Postal team. It was never mounted or displayed and has been stored in an airtight plastic bag in the closet, so it is as bright as the day I got it. The signatures include:
    Lance ARMSTRONG (USA)
    Michael BARRY (CAN)
    Tom BOONEN (BEL)
    Dylan CASEY (USA)
    David CLINGER (USA)
    Antonio CRUZ (USA)
    Roberto HERAS (ESP)
    George HINCAPIE (USA)
    Steffen KJAERGAARD (NOR)
    Kenny LABBE (USA)
    Floyd LANDIS (USA)
    Chann McRAE (USA)
    Gianpaolo MONDINI (ITA)
    Pevel PADRNOS (CZE)
    Victor Hugo PENA (COL)
    Jose Luis "Chechu" RUBIERA (ESP)
    Christian VANDE VELDE (USA)
    Robbie VENTURA (USA)
    Matthew "Matty" WHITE (AUS)
    Dave ZABRISKIE (USA) Twice

    The only missing signature is Benoit JOACHIM (LUX).

    Looking to sell it or trade it for a quality carbon bike (58cm top tube). Price is only a guess, open to opinions ;)

    Hello:

    I was wondering if you have any articles or listing on your flag. I won a flag in 2001 and I am now going to sell it as well. I was told that there was only 20 of them given away each year for 2001 and 2002. I was wondering do you know what they called the flag or how to track any information on the flag. Please let me know

    Mike

    Sorry, I don't. I've looked around a little for info, but never really found any. Definitely don't see any of them around though.

    A USPS rep took some pictures of me with the flag and a few other USPS people, but I never got a copy of it. Now I wish I would have spent a little more effort to get one, since now it will likely be impossible (after nearly 10 years).
