I was lucky enough to be growing up in Boulder in the Red Zinger/Coors Classic days and saw Andy coming up. It was obvious he was special when he was like 19 or something - I don't remember. I have a particularly vivid memory of him powering up The Wall on the Morgul Bismark chasing a break wearing the young rider jersey and Levi's (not denim - just said Levi's because they sponsored him) shorts. He went on a training ride with us once when I was racing the Mini Red Zinger. I thought that was kinda neat (IIRC, we also road with the likes of Ron Kiefel and Davis Phinney) at the time. I think it's REALLY neat now and like to boast about it.
Did I mention I rode with Andy Hampsten?
