We’ve all read or even met those less than gracious athletes. After spending the evening together at the Coates' All- American BBQ, I can honestly say this wasn’t the case with Andy Schleck. As a fellow athlete, I am accustomed to the rigors of training schedules, travel and the difficulty in creating a balanced life. Often times athletes are deemed self-absorbed due to the intense focus and the general nature of sports. Andy was an a breath of fresh air with his non assuming, generous attitude.


    Anyone who has followed cycling the last few years is no stranger to the Lëtzebuerger, Andy Schleck. Following three years of finishing 2nd in the Tour de France, Andy continues to build on his enormous momentum. Creating an incredible alliance with his brother Frank, both are a force to recon with. For all accounts and purposes, he is a super-star. But you’d never know!
    Leading up to the much anticipated USA Pro Cycling Challenge here in Colorado, Andy spent a week here in Steamboat.  With an emphasis on altitude acclimation, the week was spent biking, fishing and enjoying the incredible hospitality of our locals. All the fame and intensity didn’t stop my new-found hero from spending a morning riding along River Road with about 250-300 locals. Andy was equally impressed with the interest, support and enthusiasm from Steamboat’s own.    
    I am impressed with Schleck. He is one of the best in the world. But more importantly, he is a great guy. For that, I tip my hat to Andy.
   

    The USA Pro Cycling Challenge will roll into Steamboat Friday, August 26th following the 4th stage from Avon, Colorado. They will continue on their enormous journey toward Breckenridge Saturday morning. This is a once in a life-time opportunity and I encourage everyone to be a part of it.
