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.
