Tim "the buffalo" Noakes was captured here making some history as the first racer to crest the Filmore St. climb on lap # 1 at the first annual San Francisco Grand Prix (September 9th , 2oo1). I think Hincapie won that year with a little help from Armstrong. Tim took home the coveted sprint cobble at the 2010 Steel Wül Cobble Classic. As you can see from the photos, his nickname is appropriate. I am going to go out on a limb and assume that must be a daunting feeling looking over your shoulder and seeing Eki, Klasna, Lance, Horner and the boys chasing you down like predator to prey. Tim,.....we look forward to sitting on your wheel soon!
