Bob has advanced stages of coronary artery disease, a hereditary heart problem that caused a massive heart attack in 2004. Due to the condition, Bob, age 53, has technically died twice and has had 16 stents placed in his heart.

Cequent has provided Bob with its ROLA® Roof Top Vortex™ Basket and the NV2™ Bike Carrier in support of his quest to raise $1 million for four charities. These products will be used on the car that will follow and assist during the ride.
