cement tracks were big on people's minds back then...we address "tracks" in part II, but in today's context).
Other than that, the questions asked in the story were much the same as in 1982http://bmxurl.com/bmxatan00
Excellent post! I remember that article and always enjoyed reading about the pros back then.
Greg Hill had an interesting comment about the tracks during that time stating that they were way too easy and required zero skill. Someone else, maybe Kevin or Brent, said more jumps...way more jumps were needed.
These guys had some great incite to the sport on many different levels. Business, future, representation, and it's important to remember how young they were at the time, teens and early twenties! They defined and portrayed what "Pro" meant.
Thanks again for sharing.
