May as well have been a Bigfoot

I was up in Annadel a few weeks ago preriding the Wizard Staff Cross Country course and who do I run into? That is Billy Kostrikin, 1991 Jr. National Cross Country champ. His brother Nick was a local frambuilder in Santa Rosa and made Billy's bikes and when he was riding for the Salsa/NTI team, Nick built him a bike with a Salsa tubeset that looked just like a Salsa but was custom fit for Billy. That's the bike in the photo with most of the original parts. He said he hadn't been on a bike in a long time which basically means he would be crushing you by not quite as much. Nothing better than seeing someone so gifted mopping up on a bike that's about 20 years old.
