Vintage time folks!
Can you guess who this fine looking man is? This is the guy you don't want to let your daughter date. No, his name is not Earl.
You guessed it. It's me. It was right after I competed in my first mtb race. It was 1996 (I think) and it was at, the hat gives it away. Volga. I was riding a fancy Pacific from Toys R Us. It even had a suspension fork. Yikes! So glad it didn't break on me. I finished dead last too. There were a few that didn't finish. My greatest memory was this old guy in a poncho cheering me on about a 1/4 mile from the finish. One of my old buddies & I called him the Mountain Man. The mountain man was from the Specialized bike helmet. I think this guy even raced that day but finished way ahead of me and had time to cheer us slow folk on. Can you guess who that was? You're right! The one and only John Adamson.
It is a fond memory indeed. Thanks again for the cheer John....
