I’m proud to announce that Michigan’s own, Frankie Andreu has agreed to announce and participate not only at 2015’s edition of Maple Hill Race for Wishes, but during the entire Kalamazoo Race Weekend! Friday night, Frankie will be on hand at the OAMNOW/Athletic Mentors Race Clinic to assist in teaching and developing our Michigan racers. On Saturday he will be announcing the Miller Energy Criterium, and Sunday he will be announcing Maple Hill Race for Wishes. We can’t wait for this exciting weekend in July! We hope you feel the same!
Frankie Andreu is one of the most popular and well-respected names in American professional cycling. He retired from racing at the end of 2000 after a 12-year professional career. During his racing career he competed in the Tour de France nine times and was one of the team’s most selfless performers and most depended on workers. In addition, he competed in three Tours of Spain and one Giro d’ Italia. His racing experience not only encompassed Grand Tours, but also included high placed finishes in World Cup events, World Championships, and Spring Classics. He competed in two Olympic Games, 1988 placing 8th, and 1996 placing 4th in Atlanta.
