Declare June 5, 2013 Andy Hampsten Day

This June marks the 25th anniversary of Andy Hampsten's epic Maglia Rosa-snagging stage in the 1988 Giro d'Italia. To honor his achievement, we're officially declaring Wednesday, June 5th, 2013 to be Andy Hampsten Day.

How does one celebrate Andy Hampsten Day, you ask? We don't expect you to head out to the Passo del Gavia and ride the stage, nor do we expect you to ride through a rough blizzard while stripping down for speed. Instead, we suggest a simple bike ride for pleasure, rain or shine, to get out there and enjoy your favorite sport. Maybe take the day off and have a BBQ?  Oh, and spread the word, because we want to make this holiday a big thing.

Have any other celebration suggestions? Let us know in the comments.
