    Just watched a couple of videos that had clips of that run! At least I think that there were on the VHS tape and the DVD I watched last night.

    Travis Brown barely making the water jump at NORBA Shanty Creek 1996.
    You had the option of going around.
    You are really smart if you can tell me who is the rider that tried the jump,broke his collarbone and didn't make the Olympics.

    A couple of race vans from Whiskeytown 84'

    Tom Hillard was in charge of the Specialized Child Molester Van I believe.

    here's one of me at vultures knob in wooster ohio...somewhere in the late 90's....still riding the old proflex shorts...lol....i just purchased a frame like this and some other parts to rebuild this bike...cant wait to get on it again and see what it was like...i quit riding this bike so I can use disc brakes..other than that...this bike rocked.

    first pic is of me just playing around..they had a little jump at the finish line...i would practice so I was sure to air out good when crossing thru this area...lots of spectators

    the second is one of my faves....this is the start of the race..the bikes behind me are about 1 bike length past the starting line...thats all she wrote for the entire race...some days were allot of fun that way...you can always tell whom raced bmx at the start.

    Travis broke the collar bone, I remember Ned coming up short I think the prior year while warming up with Tod Wells and exploding his rear wheel. Speed and not pulling up was the key to the water jump for sure, you could gain a spot or three for sure.

    Correct, real steep up shot then a sharp left around a tree, the non jump riders never had enough speed to pop up the embankment.

    Ran Across some old scans that look to be from the 1989 Nationals at Mammoth. I will stand corrected if anyone has better info.

    The start of the pro race, and the British rider who won the race but didn't get to be champion is already in the lead. You can see Ned and Tomac in the bunch.

    Don Myrah and Tinker Juarez on the start line

    Rishi Grewal

    That Brit is Tim Gould , and,if memory serves, I'm thinkin it was the 89 worlds that was staged at Mammoth + Timmy Gould sent shivers through the Pro Peleton by scorching the hill climb.Don"Sweet Pea" Myrah won the cross country stage of the 89 Worlds(the US natz-finals were at Big Bear in 89)
    You(CK)+Peter Graves were in the announcer booth, and were in a hilarious verbal joust about music selection for the event, (at least I got a kick out of the verbal grenades bein lobbed back n forth)....

    Ha Ha Shoberg. Has to be Michigan. I'd imagine Watts, Matter, Tiles, Quiring, etc. are all in there too.

    That's a cool Ritchey jersey on Don. It's amazing to think that these two guys are still kicking ass.

    Yep pretty common but "Sweet Pea" just struck me as particularly funny. We had a "Sweet baby James" - though of course his name was not James.

    This looks to me like Mammoth 1986. I see Paul Thomasberg, Tinker Juarez, Ned Overend in a Schwinn jersey, Mike Kloser, Rishi Grewal, John Tomac and Greg Herbold. Any other IDs?

    I think the Ross rider on the front row is Casey Kunselman, that's John Weissenrider in the Schwinn kit with Russ Worley on the Yeti next to JW. That's Herbold behind Worley.

    I'm somewhere out of the right side of the frame aiming my Olympus. Where or where are those pics?! I know that I still have 'em.

    My pics are a little older than you guys but I've got some from mt. snow in the early/mid 90s. This was most likely 95, used to have the shirt, got lost in a recent move though.

    Then there were 2 i had to load up on imgur, i guess they were too large:




    Great times at those races!

    Those are AWESOME photos

    Based on your expression, I'd guess they were bugging you for photos but you tolerated those Pro MTBers as best you could

    No, actually he's the one behind him crying after seeing his buttocks. It happens. It is a thing of beauty.

    I corrected that for you. The heavenly glutes of the Tomes require the proper identification.

    Thankfully I had a mouth full of seltzer instead of coffee - but I did manage to drench the blouse of one of my partners. She was not amused - but I'm still laughing about that post!!!.

    Was digging around some boxes and came across these.
    1991 Hunter or Mt Snow - can't remember which. Someone will know based on the lodge in the pictures.

    A few of the gang doing some practice laps.
