Hi,

Thanks for posting this. I've always been a big Andy Hampsten fan. I need to do one of his Italy tours before too long.

Always liked him and Eric Heiden (remember him). Humble, good ole American pretty boy racers who contributed a sense of normality to the sport without ego.

Great Interview!

I completely lol'd at "how do you explain Alexi Grewal to people?" If you have ever dealt with that man, you'll know what I mean.

Huh? What's "normal" in pro cycling is to put one's ego away and share their Giro winnings with the teammates. Now that's something an interviewer should ask Hampsten about!
