The Lion King was swamped by adoring fans!

Each year Sinclair Imports plays host of the one of Interbike's highlights, a mega-party where industry figures and professional riders come together with some of the most beautiful girls that Vegas has to offer. This year's party was held at the uber-trendy JET Nightclub inside the Mirage Casino and it certainly created some excitement, and not just among the male cycling fans.

The almost-now-retired Italian super-sprinter, Mario Cipollini, was one of the major celebrities who attended the party he was in town for the seriously competitive Industry Cup event, open mainly to members of the bike industry who are still racing, and invited VIPs, an event he would eventually crash out of. Joining 'Cipo' at the bash on Wednesday, September 26, were former Paris-Roubaix winners Magnus Backstedt and Stuart O'Grady, as well as a still-glamorous Rochelle Gilmore, despite the loss of her luggage from the flight across from Italy.
