the "Reno Rocket"


This was January of 1993 and yes, that is a glass Gatorade bottle in my hand. Gentes called me the night before and asked me what I was doing tomorrow besides riding with the Rocket. We met him at the Los Gatos Lodge and Otto followed us in his signature Mercedes wagon. I spent my food money on the disposable camera (photo by Greg Shapleigh). Lemond was eating now-and-laters, licorice, and sour patch kids. He told me that powerbars were over rated. He was like a diesel engine and did not warm up until hour 5 when he dropped us like a bad habit. He was on a custom Calfee with a frame pump duct taped to the head tube.

Steel Wül You Find It #3

You can spy these local ruins from a county road. The first person to email us a photograph of themselves in front of them will be treated to a burrito of your choice from Tacqueria Michoacan! Hint, ....think 89' quake.

Mt. Bache boogie woogie

AC and I finally found a day to pedal together, so we went old school
and spun up the Canyon to Mt. Bache. AC used to do the Canyon everyday
after school. He would stash his Bell Vi Pro brain bucket in a cabin at
the bottom. Thank God for Jim Gentes.

Big Wednesday

video>

1973 Giro d talia (Merckx 6' 4") vs (Fuentes 5' 4") on Monte Carpena.

Fast forward 38 years

2011 Big Wednesday (Apple 6' 4") vs (Corry 5' 4") on Felton Empire.

It is mind boggling to think that Cadex Bob would do Felton Empire in 17 mins.

Dave & Ruck-Sack

As you can hear, Dave is carrying on a perfectly good conversation and I am breathing like a 350 lbs Sumo Wrestler who just swallowed a double double animal style from In-n-Out.
