Don’t forget Alexi

Dear Editor:

Mayor Mick, I applaud your efforts in trying to leave a legacy by creating a special day for talented bikers from the Aspen area. But I think you have forgotten the best biker that actually came from the Aspen area – Alexi Grewal.

He has everything that would qualify for his own day. Alexi was born in Aspen, he trained here, he won an Olympic gold medal in 1984. His bike is now in the Smithsonian Institution, and he was elected to the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame in 2004.

Please think about that.
