Film time is 70 Minutes, followed by a one hour post-show talk with Andy Hampsten
Please join us Saturday, Feb. 28, for a viewing of the 2014-film, Slaying the Badger, with very special guest Andy Hampsten.
In this engrossing film, Greg LeMond looks back at the pivotal 1986 Tour and his increasingly vicious rivalry with friend, teammate and mentor Bernard Hinault. The reigning Tour champion and brutal competitor known as The Badger, Hinault promised to help LeMond to his first victory, in return for LeMond supporting him in the previous year. But in a sport that purports to reward teamwork, it’s really every man for himself. Enjoy the film, followed by an intermission with an open bar, and then an hour to ask fellow La Vie Claire teammate Andy Hampsten about what else happened behind the scenes during the ‘86 Tour. Hampsten will also take questions and be available for autographs following the event.
This event is a benefit for the Major Taylor Project.
