This shot is forever burned into my skull. I remember it published in an issue of MBA. This is Cindy Whitehead in 1986 after riding in a 50 mile cross country race. Four miles into the race she snapped her seatpost and rode the entire remaning 46 miles standing on here pedals. And oh ya, she won. Hottie Montain Biking Guru.
I had the opportunity to meet her at the Mammoth Mountain Downhill a number of years later. She was blown away that we came across the country, just out of high school from Ontario to come race this event. I was riding my Ritchey P21 with a home made rear wheel cover to go faster. I thgink I used a crazy carpet for teh cover. Retarded. I wish sooo much that I hada camera with me back then. Oh well.
