Best Race Ever?

Published May 17th, 2004







You know those old baseball films where they show Babe Ruth looking into the crowd, pointing with his bat, wacking a home run, and then waddling around the bases? Well, this video is nothing like that. But, it’s almost as old!



David Bailey is number 6. I’m number 5. Other riders are Jeff Ward number 1. Ron Lechien number 2. Johnny O’Mara number 3. Broc Glover number 4. Erik Kehoe number 8. Keith Bowen number 9. Jim Holley number 12.



David and I battled almost the entire race. Some say it’s the ‘best race ever’. We passed each other about 20 times, including 5 or 6 times in one lap. At the end of the 20 lap main, David won. He wore me out! I was totally, completely exhausted. (Wouldn’t you know I’m known for getting second in the best race ever?)
