Seeing as this sort of question crops up from time to time thought I'd try and keep the combined wisdom in one thread. To get started I've added a couple I know about, with a load more I'm unusre of.

Whatever happened to...

Chris Chance - Fat City Cycles - Designing garden equipment
Jeff Lindsay - Mountain Goat - Making glass tools
Dave Hemming - Racer and MBUK journo - Working for MBR
Jez Avery - Bunny hop maestro - Still riding
Jack Whitmer - Cook Bros Racing - designing centrifugal force equipment for space agency (though that was a while back)
Joe Breeze - Breezer - designing commuting/folding bikes
Bob Roll - Road and MTB Racer - TV commentator
Tinker Juarez - Racer - Still racing


Unknown

Mark 'Blast Off' Batt - Bunny hop maestro - Was working for Caratti sport. Now unsure.
Dave 'The Vanilla Gorilla' Weins - Racer
Sophie Brooks - Racer and Scant's favourite
David Baker - Racer - Retired due to illness, then unknown
Doug Bradbury - Manitou
Joe Murray - Racer, Kon and Voodoo - Still involved with voodoo ?
Jamie 'Capt. Freefall' Tatlow - MBUK journo
Darren Tapp - Bromley Bike rider of both FAT & Yeti. freerider before freeriding
Daryl Price - Racer
Sara Ballantyne - Racer
Cindy Whitehead - Racer
John Tomac -Racer - Is tomac bikes still going ?!?
Joe Sloop - Racer
Ot Pi - Trials Wizard
Caroline Alexander - Racer - Retired after Commonwealth Games MTB race. Now?
Alex Pong - Magic Motorcycles

Darren Tapp??

I know that man!

GT Zaskar - he found air where others were scared to dare!!! Never knew he went to Bromley bikes.

Also got a shot of him coming down pipeline in a speedway stylee, amongst other moments.

Dave Hemming is also something to do with Norco, on the UK side of things.

There was a pic of Doug Bradbury in MBR the other month at an event, so he's still on the scene. Not sure if he stll has any connection to Manitou.

Well, I know Tomac bikes are still going. According to the Tomac bikes website John is/was involved with the company, beyond that I have no idea.

Isn't Ot Pi still competing from time to time?.
