The big US bike trade show is Interbike, which just ended in Las Vegas. I was there after a hiatus of several years to take part in the US MTB Hall of Fame activities. I took a few copies of my old magazine, the Fat Tire Flyer, to get signatures from some of the folks who had appeared in it.

I was trudging the vast arena with Chris Chance when we found John Tomac in the Kenda booth. After John signed the photo of himself in his first race, I turned the page and saw an article on Fat Chance, so I had Chris sign that. Turning the page once again, there was an article about Joe Breeze, and he signed it. What a coincidence that the three guys I'm with are on consecutive pages. This is quite the souvenir. If you can't read the Tomac inscription, it says, "Charlie, this was my first MT bike!"

I think I'll keep this one.
