warning! old school content

check this old pic of some dirty hippie. if i remember correctly i was going off like a gun, but there was one dude in front of me. this was not a good race tactic for me. i made the top 10 i think but that was after fading pretty bad after starting too fast. i've learned since.

who else can you recog? can you guess the venue?

Oh yeah! Shockobill in the house. I remember that pretty well, cause I think I took that. I know exactly where it was too.

Blogger debaser said...
That's Chris on the left, with the Green Palmer fork? And Nick in the HH jersey?

nothing like riding inside of an 8" deep, cattle carved rut and calling it singletrack.


i loved riding there though...well, unless it's in august and the temps are above 100deg.

Blogger Chaybo said...
mw...did you have an Amp style fork on the Shock-a-billy before you threw on that White ??

Blogger debaser said...
Those laps were so long, and I blew into outer space right as I started my last lap. Man, that one hurt so bad...

Is that fork still hanging from the wall o'fame in Cycleworks?

Blogger mg said...
isn't that dave chase in the red jersey, just off of mw's right shoulder? i think it is...

those were the good 'ol days...

potter's pasture is cool.

that's S-House behind you wills, on the red bontrager with Judy SL on front and Phil front wheel, just look at the thighs, uh, yeah, check out another dudes thighs, i said it.

i had that same f-en fork that year, except in the sc70 model for my ibis, and it blew twice and ruined the bushings in 5 months, piece of crap for $450 wholesale.

yuck.

the things you learn.

Blogger debaser said...
Dave had the Judy SL, and Nick had the DH lowers?

Judy DH: I'm giggling just thinking about that!

Blogger Chaybo said...
nah...that's not Super Dave. That's nick fo sure.

Blogger mw said...
pretty good find eh? yeah i know its of me but debaser was accusing me of not being very vocal lately which guilted me into posting this. ha.

the amp fork resides at cw. it's on permanent display. its been robbed of a brake boss for a fat that was sold. and the amp fork was acually never on this bike but on the green and blue one that was a previous generation.

Blogger mw said...
floor sweeper is very funny. yep. that's s-house. he does have nice legs.

Blogger redstone said...
Sweet pic Wills. You almost look like Tilford with that grimace. Potters was awesome. Anyone remember the port-a-duke there?

Yo Redstone.....somebody thought that was you wearing the red jersey, but most of us already knew that you were behind that bush with Mary !

Blogger debaser said...
The guy in the pic aint got no upper body, and s-house was still spitting time between rugby and biking then. I'd guess not s-house.

Blogger s_house said...
Yeah, that's me behind mw in the cw jersey. 30 pounds ago. About the best finish I ever had racing. Mmmmmm....Potters......
