Images of an interview with Greg Fuquay from 1992, courtesy of darmtb who took the pictures (assume no scanner!). Hope you can read it OK.

I love the wise words on discussing how at the time suspension seemed to be the way things were going, yet Greg's take was: "Maybe what will happen is that everyone will have suspension bikes, which is how it is anyway in the world of racing, and someone's gonna turn up on a straightforward bike and beat the hell outa them on a machine weighing 21lb. Everyone will say 'Oh my God I've got to have one of those!' and the team riders will start to ride superlight rigid bikes again."
