April Cycling Celebrity Contest
Cover #1 and #4, so I weighed in as the tie-braker. To quote Mayor Daly (senior) of Chicago, "It's
not who votes, it's who counts the votes." After reading last month's issue of Martha Magazine's featuring Martha extolling
to virtues of composting, I'm convinced she'd enjoy a bicycle helmet with a gardening them. Congratulations to J.
Graham winner of March's Cycling Celebrity contest; she has won a free Bandbox helmet cover of her choice.

We will' have another winner next month, so please help me select a bicycle helmet for Yvan Martinea, sports announcer
for Montreal's Salut Bonjour. Bandbox is going bilingual this month to welcome nos amis Canadienne.
Yvan Martineau est un animateur-télé qui a lui-même concocté les séries
Everest (qui lui a procuré un prestigieux Prix Gémeaux), Kilimanjaro, La France à vélo, l'Amérique
à vélo et, actuellement, il est à la barre de Culture Vélo, sur la chaîne TVA Sports. Fou
de vélo, il était allé à 14 ans aux Chutes Niagara sur deux roues. Yvan vit au centre-ville de
Montréal aux abords de la très populaire piste du Canal Lachine et il se déplace à vélo
12 mois par année pour aller au boulot. Il est donc autant cycliste urbain que cycliste et cyclotouriste. Au Québec,
il est l'un des meilleurs ambassadeurs de la bicyclette. Yvan
Martineau is a TV host and producer very well known in Quebec, Canada. He went to Everest, Kilimanjaro, hosted cycling series
all over France, also America on bike and he is now on the prestigious TVA network with Culture Velo. He is regularly Honorary

bike downtown Montreal 12 months a year to go to work. He also has a touring bike, a cyclocross, a mountain bike and of course
urban and road bikes.
