I got the nod form Singletracks.com for a photo of me from the 90s – this is form the 1997 NORBA Nationals Big Bear Lake, CA. I took 3rd at this race. Now I’m 51 and still just as hard on the trails as I was back then. But a wee bit slower, ha! I was sponsored by GT Bicycles, Bullet USA and Qranc USA to name a few. The ZZYZX Fork was one of the first tripple-clamp forks on the market and made by Dan Hanebrink – this was an amazing time to be Downhill Racing!
