Saturday Ride Steel Wül Trivia

Who is the guy in the blue hat and glasses cheering on the Grey Hound during the Prologue of the 85' Coors Classic?

James Holmes - old school Santa Cruz Saturday ride dude. He is cheering on Carmel native Jonathan "Jock" Boyer who was the first American to pedal in the TdF in 1981. Boyer was also the first vegetarian to race the Tdf and was famous amongst his teammates for lugging around suitcases full of nuts and fruit. He was 12th in the TdF in 83' and won the Coors Classic in 80'.
