I didn't think this one was worthy of posting, but I put it up on MTBR and everyone liked it, so I'll put it up here.
In 1978 there was a local cyclocross race, and Joe Breeze and I entered on our new "mountain bikes." I was DNF with a damaged chainring (wimpy TA stuff) and Joe Breeze finished out of the money, but another rider from our club, Velo Club Tamalpais, won on a regular 'cross bike.
That was my first "date" with the woman who became my girlfriend and co-publisher of the Fat Tire Flyer
, Denise Caramagno.
This photo taken after the race shows me, Denise, race winner Joe Ryan (with a cut on his face), and Gary Fisher. According to Gary's watch, the photo was taken at 11:15.
My book, Fat Tire Flyer: Repack and the Birth of Mountain Biking
is at your bookseller and on Amazon
