Old days of BMX

Going through old things last week and found these results from some NBL nationals.

I have some with Tomac in them from grands in 87? I'll dig those up, just thought some of you might find these amusing.

Started racing age thirteen, was twenty one when doing this in '86 and just turned forty four. Thirty one years of competitive cycling is a bit crazy but I still enjoy it.

Dreaming about 2010

Usually in the middle of February I start to dream about racing, odd, unrealistic dreams from lack of racing time. Well. I'm already having them from this past year and look forward to competing again next season.

11-6-09 did a ride up at Highland, NH freeride/dh mountain, brought back memories of my old DH days, I forgot how much fun it was. My friend Chris Z. dragged me out so I threw a bike together the night before and we all had a great time!

I think that some DH might be thrown into next season, occasional race helps technical riding on top of just being fun.

End of the day, in the locker room changing back into street clothes along with another rider who I know from somewhere, can't place him. As we're leaving he asks if we know each other, so we swap names and both chuckle.

It was Adam Craig, NORBA National Champion, who I raced against quite a bit when he was in Maine and still do at nationals, we have only seen the other in xc uniform which lead to no recognition.
We talked a bit and went our separate ways just like an old New England XC race, a cool end to a great day just like old times.

Looking forward to next season, 2010 is going to be great!
