I have been astounded by the rapid recovery of Saul Raisin since his horrible crash in the first stage of the Circuit de la Sarthe stage race April 4th. He currently is in France for some team pictures with his Credit Agricole teammates. I guess not all French teams are heartless to their American riders. (Ask Lance about Cofidis).
Saul’s partners in his recovery are the team at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta Georgia. Saul has tried to help raise awareness and funds for the catastrophic care hospital through the sale of Raisin Hell bracelets. These are similar to the LiveStrong bracelet.
Recently, Saul has posted a new product on his website, Raisin Hell socks. I think this is a great idea as many people have bracelets for a variety of causes. We always need socks and the proceeds go to a good cause. Not a bad idea.
