mcam - I remember that article well. I rode a Torker also, so that image was burned in my skull.
Funny story... the first time I met Jason was in 1981 at an NBL National in Griffin, Georgia. We were the same age... and I was an unknown. I remember walking up to him, introducing myself and telling him that I thought he and I were going to be a good race. One of his older teammates was sitting there with him and about fell off the tailgate of the truck he was sitting on laughing. We split that day... he won expert and I won the open class. He went on to win the NBL # 1 that year and the following year (I finished 3 and 2), then he disappeared. He was an awesome BMXer... and a guy that I was always thrilled to race against. The last time we raced before he left in 1982 at the NBL Grands in South Park. I won the main, Jensen finished second, but won the # 1 plate by 5 points. Then he disappeared.
Blizzard of Ozz, where were you then?
