I just uploaded a clip from my old VHS recordings of the 1992 Mountain Bike World Cup race in Mount Snow, Vermont.
I was watching these races a couple of nights ago and one section of this race captures the essence of Tomac's allure. When I watched it (for the thousandth time) I thought "I have to post that tiny clip".
Well as I edited it down I couldn't help but keep some other stuff in.
The clip of interest happens 52:27 in.
Then compare it to everyone going through that same section before and after ...
I was there - in that race, going through that section 6 times -at a rather leisurely pace compared with those in the video clip even though I thought
I was going fast. I can tell you what John Tomac did through that section was not within the realm of human capability.
That man was/is simply awesome.
