Farrar, Hegyvary at CycleU Launch Party

Most kids dream of the 9th inning HR, or the last second hoop, or whatever. For the rest of us who make pilgrimages to the Alpine passes or to the Belgian Cobbles – here’s where you need to be Saturday night. CycleU is opening a new training facility in West Seattle and is bringing out two of Seattle’s best pro alumni: Adrian Hegyvary and Tyler Farrar. They are both really great guys and will share some of their battle stories.

Everybody who has opened a Velonews has heard about the European campaign Tyler has had this year, and Adrian has put together an amazing 2009 domestically. Here’s the announcement from CycleU “Dean” Craig Undem:

Two amazing Professors of Cycling will be at the new West Seattle Cycle University this month to share their knowledge. Garmin professional Tyler Farrar and OUCH! professional Adrian Hegyvary are making free lectures and appearances to promote the new Specialized bikeshop and training center in what was previously a Chrysler car and Jeep showroom.

Tyler Farrar will be doing a meet and greet on Wednesday night November 18th from 5:30-7pm, then doing a talk at Magnuson Park at 8pm (info at www.Cascade.org).

Adrian Hegyvary (local rider and Cycle U coach) signed with OUCH! and will be making his pro debut this Spring alongside Tim Johnson and Floyd Landis. Adrian will be giving a talk at the new West Seattle Cycle U Grand Opening on November 7th at 6:30pm. He will be giving a presentation on the keys to his breakout season that led to his pro contract.

Cycle U West Seattle: 4550 Fauntleroy Way SW. Plenty of parking and right off the West Seattle freeway. Open house prior from noon-6pm this Saturday November 7th. Hope you can come celebrate another great homegrown success story and learn from the best.
