Met Tomac at the Plymouth Grundig years back. Got chatting to a Giant rep who couldn't believe I'd driven down from Newcastle just to watch Tomac race (I'd busted my knee so couldn't race). He took me through into the Giant enclosure where Tomac had just got back from pre-riding the course and was chatting to Bob Gregaro (?) his mechanic about changes to the bike.
Needless to saw I was a bit awestruck in the presence of the great man (I was 17) and I think Tomac did most of the talking....
Great guy though - still got the "When Jonny be good" poster he signed - framed and in pride of place in the living room. For some reason the wife thinks it is kitsch and lets me get away with it!
Also have some really bad pics of me with Tomac where I have the worst "JMC" esque long hair do ever....
I can ditto that - got the same pictures, signed number plate (i raced) and bad haircut - no comments please Tony!
