THE WEEKLY FEED: HANNAH HAULING-RAD EXTREME ENDURO VIDS-RELAX AND GO RIDE!

BLAST FROM THE PAST: BOB HANNAH ON IT!

What a great shot from Mike Lagaza showing Bob Hannah in his prime 1978. Back then open faced helmets were still in vogue and when the weather got hot and muggy many racers shed face protection in favor of air flow. Here’s Hannah, mouth open, agro and clad in Scott boots, Griffs leathers and his famous lightning bolts and DG logo. It didn’t get any better than Bob at the height of his powers.

WOUNDED COOT

Ok I’ve spent the last 4-weeks wounded. Spiral fracture of my baby finger. Wrapped and half casted makes it tough to do any personal maintenance, type, use a mouse or wash! I awkwardly tried to wheel tap this large fallen tree like my buddy Ryan (a trials expert) and proceeded to spin and launch sideways. I hit the ground lacking any athleticism and splat like a melon dropped  from the moon. What a stinking’ old coot!
This is me eyeballing the obstacle as Ryan tries to clear a good line.
