Looking for a Famous or well known bicyclist in Houston to Endorse our products

Hello All,
We are a bicycle product manufacturer here in Houston Texas who is looking for a well known bicyclist who resides in the Houston area to join us in Las Vegas for the Interbike show in September to endorse our products. We will have a nice booth set-up. If you or someone you know meets the qualifications, please contact me or reply to this thread. Potential candidates should be 'well-known' in the cycling industry. We are looking for someone to draw attention to our booth

I've met like, 6 people at bike rides through this forum - does that count? Is that like, internet famous?

Also, aside from this type of post possibly not being allowed here, I'm not sure you'll get much bite without telling us what the products are......

I've had my picture in American Randonneur magazine, and only live 200 miles from Houston. Does that count?

It'd help to know the general nature of the product.
Is well known to the cycling "industry" the same as well-known to local cyclists? I mean, are you looking for a pro racer, or somebody who all the bike shops know?

Googling around, I don't come up with much. If you're serious about racing nationally or internationally, you pretty much need to move where the hills are, and that's not Houston. Googling around some, I do find:

"and Houston-based Mandy Heintz had a successful first year racing professionally, capping off the season by riding for Team USA at the Ladies’ Tour of Holland and Lotto Belisol in Spain."

"Lawson Craddock...grew up in Houston and moved to Austin six years ago."

"Liz Baugher -- Professional Triathlete"

"Houston Triathlon Coach Trent...Triathlon coach, USA Cycling Level 3 coach, and former professional triathlete with over 19 years of racing experience...USCF bike races including criteriums, road races, and stage races, as well as cyclocross races. "
"be careful this rando stuff is addictive and dan's the 'pusher'."
