Andy Hampsten Headlines OCW Awards Banquet

We are very pleased to announce that former 1988 Giro d'Italia winner, Andy Hampsten, will be our featured speaker at the OCW Awards Banquet on February 24th. Andy is a true American cycling legend who placed 4th overall in the 1986 Tour de France.  In addition, he won the white jersey for best young rider and helped  his team leader, Greg LeMond, to victory that year. In 1987, he joined the 7-Eleven Cycling Team and is most known for his heroic effort in the 1988 Giro on the Gavia Pass for riding in a blizzard and taking the leaders jersey. In 1992, while riding for the Motorola squad, he broke away from the leaders on the Alpe d'Huez to win this classic Tour de France stage.

Andy brings a unique perspective to the emergence of American cycling on the world scene and currently lives in Boulder, Colorado and Tuscany.

I know this will be an evening you will not want to miss, so be sure watch our OCW home page for more details on when registration opens.

February 1st General Meeting

This will be a very special night where we will hear all about the exciting emergence of E Bikes on the street and in the dirt. After a quick discussion from Shuji Sakai, S-TEC Coordinator with Shimano here in Irvine, you will have the opportunity to ride a E Bike in the parking lot. Please be sure to bring your own helmet and dress according to the weather. If you have never been on a pedal assist E Bike, you are in for a treat. As always, arrive early to socialize with your riding buddies and enjoy a light dinner hosted by OCW.
