Sandrosian just sent me this shot of me ripping it back in the day. I am pretty sure it’s from the McLane Pacific Crit (RIP) in 2002. I could be wrong about that, but the semi in the background makes me think I may be correct. You can tell it’s early season as I’m on the infamous non-team matching NetZero bike, wearing NetZero socks, and NetZero helmet. How come no one else is making a hurting face?
Also, notice the Jerker on the front. We were teammates a month or so later. Take note of the angle of his brake hoods!
