Last year, the line snaked through the Chicago store - past the fitness, automotive and motorcycle devices, all the way out to Michigan Avenue - as people flocked to meet their fellow Windy City native and Team Garmin pro cyclist, Christian Vande Velde. We have great news for everyone -- he's excited to do it all again. On Wednesday, Dec. 29, from 5-6 p.m., Christian will meet his fans in the second-floor auditorium (near the outdoor handhelds, marine units and aviation products), where he will discuss (and take questions about) life on the pro cycling tour, his consecutive top-8 finishes in the Tour de France, how he uses his Garmin Edge in training and racing, his goals for this year and the rest of the 2011 Garmin-Cervélo squad. Following this candid conversation, Christian will sign autographs and snap pictures for the fans in attendance. Keep in mind that last year was a packed house, so come early, save your spot and shop around the only place to see all of Garmin's various products in one spot. And of course, if you're looking for holiday gifts, our knowledgeable staff can help you find the perfect Garmin for everyone on your list. See you there!
