December 15/12 9:17 am - USA Olympian at the FCV

Posted by Editoress on 12/15/12

The FCV is pleased to announce that with the co-operation of Canadian bicycle manufacturer Cervelo, American Olympic Track athlete Bobby Lea, will be at the Forest City Velodrome on Saturday, December 15th at 4:00 pm.

For those of you who do not know Bobby Lea:

His biopage from the 2012 London Summer Olympics
his NBC Sports page (with results) from the Olympics
• and his USACycling biopage
• He and his brother Syd were the subjects of a very moving and inspirational write up in Bicycling magazine this spring

Bring your autograph books and sharpie pens and get the rare chance to meet a true Olympian. He'll be at the velodrome for the youth session on Saturday. Come out - and stay for the races, the last race of 2012, the Christmas Special! (Will Bobby Lea be racing Saturday evening? I haven't a clue, but I wouldn't want to miss it if he were! And I'd love to take to the track with him were I able!)

Wesley and I often reflect just how lucky we are to have a facility like FCV and to be able to ride and train with professional cyclists, national and world champions, and (now) Olympians! What other sport and what other place lets 8 and 9 year olds (e.g. Wesley and Liam) meet, ride with, train with, and compete alongside so many world-class athletes! Come out and meet Bobby Lea, support the FCV youth program, and have a great time! (Can you tell how excited I am?)

Hope to see you all there,
Benjamin Hill, for FCV
