I was just thinking of Troy i was looking for some results of christmas race when we were on mcs and he won one of them and i tanked the whole weekend [accually from what i remember john purse rode me high in 1st turn in all my mains seems like i remember returning the favor and troy snuck by us both for the win...
I feel like a dummy cause i seen troy race in 2000 at the christmas race and didnt go talk to him[some other riders from ohio kinda ercked me that day-i was just watching]Tell him i said hi.I thought that was you and your son in the mains in 35-39 cruiser and the youngster im going to need a buddy in the class when i get out there im trying to shoot for bridgetown idk yet?

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) Found it. Getting old I guess, glasses may have helped. Good to hear you're back riding, enjoy it. Stop by the HBR trailer at a race and say hi.

Greetings Ohioans, Somebody on here mentioned a track in Avon Lake. From the mid 60's to the early 90's my family was there many times to visit relatives. From where the pool and ball fields are I would walk or ride my bike on a trail behind the church across the street almost to the rel's backyard. I spent many a day at the pool, sliding on the skating rink (winter only) behind the fire station or wading through chest deep water to fish behind the steam plant when the stripers were running, but with all the pedalling around I don't remember ever seeing the BMX track. Where was it...Thanks, Eric

Tell him i said hi.I thought that was you and your son in the mains in 35-39 cruiser and the youngster im going to need a buddy in the class when i get out there im trying to shoot for bridgetown idk yet?


Beating you and Purse was a proud day for Troy, we have it on film (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

I'll tell Troy hi for ya, we understand how busy races can be. That's Tony in the 35-39 class, he's everyones buddy. I'm sure he'll remember you, say hey if you see him. I actually made hime ride a 20" at the Orlando national for the first time in 24 years (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Couple more pics from a magazine ad featuring Lausman, it ran around 2000. Troy said 2 seconds later him, Purse and Milham were on the ground. Way cool...........

Jim K, How about that old skatepark in Elyria we went to and I went through the ice!! What ever happened to that place? I know it was closed when we went there (a little B&E), I can never remember where the hell it was exactly. And how about the Lake jumping off the pier in Bay!!

Ok i thought this was tony so this is todd?I remember you had a cool elcamino right?Funny the things i remember.You were the eldest too.Shame they dont remember how many times troy beat mike lausman im sure it was prolly 50/50 ...I also remember troy beating barry mcmannus some at hilliard [i had trouble beating mac only very few times]I will say hi i remember tony!
I was watching tony live on go211 at wpb didnt know he was in there til i heard his name still had a hard time iding him if you have a recent pic of him in uniform you oatta post it so well recognize him?
Wonder where this picture was taken at of troy- indy?
I remember racing troy at state races when i first started[maybe 9 or 10 yrs old like 82?] he was on sew ups and beat me very bad i think it was before my birthday like always ....i remember racing tony too kinda young at states and getting smoked by him!
