|as its at a time period when i first started racing (no more - but i keep saying maybe next year) so all the bikes and kit is of course my favorite stuff as well as some of the riders being my inspiration.
mind you if i rode all them hills i would have seen more seat clusters, stays and rear cogs than finish lines. i would liken myself as a predecessor to Cippolini - without the talent but with a definate yen for all things showy, ridiciluously suave.
some of ken m. saito's are the best pics i have seen of racing shots. i wonder why he covered just the coors?

|oops that should read "marry"||Spirito|

|i dont want anyone to get all freudian on me by implying i see myself as J.C. with reference to Mary and virgin.
matter of fact - Brian the messiah will do nicely as long as im not affiliated with the People's Front of Judea - theyre quitters unlike the Judean People's Front.
|Doesn't J.C. have more hair? Other than that......:-) nm||Dave Hickey|

|true ... very true.
i will argue that JC was a hipster and also has the very first known cultural depiction of a Mullet as painted by Michelangelo in the Cistine chapel (seen it myself).
my work (if you could call it that) has me partly involved with Fashion week here in NYC i see many splendid examples of mullets sported by men and women alike - tres hip but also in the image of JC.
i figure that were JC around he would have taken a different fashion direction and opted for a cleaner, bolder look not unlike Telly Savalas, Yul Brenner and yours truly. after all - chicks dig it !!!

|Great Shots of Coors Classic 1985?||char|
Sep 25, 2002 7:28 PM
There was a yearly book that came out called World of Cycling, had pictures of all the races for the year with commentary interspersed on the side, these [photographs] look very familiar. All of mine got damaged due to flooding where they were stored (also the videos of the races I recorded off the local Denver TV station), so it was great to see those classic moments.
Your picture of the Eddy Campy hi-flange hub transfixed with the bridge behind is one hell of a classic shot. I mention this cause I ride a Molteni orange Eddy, I think around a 1984, bought it used, what a fantastic ride. It actually rides and feels better the faster you go.
Ride on Josephine, ride on
