you have to watch out for the old guys. remember that old age and treachery sometimes is bigger than youth and enthusiasm. in fact, it is most of the time...

I am bummed to say that I was in the video and watched him take this corner live at Pikes Peak this year and I didnt get a chance to see the exit of the corner! I was standing on the inside of the corner about 30 feet before hand. This was only the 3 corner up the hill but already you could tell he was in a class all by himself!

He had it all the way and I don’t think he even flinched…

Cool shot!
