Next Generation BioTek Performers

On October 13th, seven time Tour de France winner and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong arrived in Vermont. Just prior to landing Lance "tweeted" and invited all to come on a public ride. BioTek responded and our Whitney Hanson (GMBC green shirt) of BioTek's R&D team and his 15 month old son made the trek to Waterbury to meet and "ride" with Lance. Lance was greeted to a glorious Vermont fall day and along with ~ 200 other Vermonters started the long climb up to the Sugarbush Ski Resort.

When Whitney is not focused on his microplate R&D efforts, he hits the roads. He is a road racing veteran in Vermont and this summer won a criterium and took top three on several other occasions. He also participated in the national class Green Mountain Stage Race and took 8th in sprint points. Joining him in escorting Lance was Peter Weith, a bit farther behind.
