Team Garmin: Summerhill scores title, Hesjedal sweeps honors, fans meet faves


Summerhill Team Garmin fans are having their holiday wishes answered – whether they asked for another national championship, the chance to meet the world's top cyclists, or a little argyle fun in their stocking.

Danny Summerhill, one of many bright young stars in the Garmin cycling family after taking silver at the 2007 junior world cyclocross championships, tore through a muddy course earlier this month in Bend, Oregon, to win the U23 national cyclocross title. Danny, who greeted fans at Garmin's Interbike booth this fall, followed up his national championship ride with another U23 title at the Lichtervelde cyclocross last Saturday in Belgium, finishing third overall in the elite race. Meanwhile, Garmin's Ryder Hesjedal swept two prestigious Canadian cycling honors when he was selected top Canadian Cyclist of 2009 as well as the entire decade.  

Tylercrop With Danny's win fresh in the minds of Oregon fans, American sprinting sensation Tyler Farrar was able to meet many of the cycling faithful at Portland's River City Bicycles. Tyler, a product of the Pacific Northwest, gave his supporters in the area even more reasons to cheer for him – or in the case of the Oregonian's Heidi Swift, "Seven Reasons to Love Tyler Farrar." The next argyle armada autograph session takes place at 5 p.m. on Dec. 29 in Garmin's store on Michigan Avenue, where team leader Christian Vande Velde is eager to meet his hometown fans.

If you missed Tyler and can't make it to Michigan Avenue, you can still celebrate the season in style, thanks to Team Garmin's online store. Get the same gear you see in races – including a shot at the actual bikes used in competition – and watch for special deals on argyle apparel. No matter how or where you cheer, Team Garmin appreciates your support and wishes you all happy holidays and a wonderful 2010!
