It’s that time of the week where I go back to the Old School! And it’s to 1989 this week, and the Rochester War of the Stars contest, that will always sadly be remembered not for the riding, but the fact only a few dudes got paid their prize money. Ironically one of those was Bill Neumann, check out his super dialled run right here!
Hiroya Morizaki was battling a pretty serious elbow injury at Bike Days, and still busted out! Check a few highlights from his run and practise in this short edit by Kevin & Els!
