This caption comes from my brother Mike. “Every couple of years I make it a point to watch On Any Sunday, I love Aberg and Robert in the MX segment, totally dig the Elsinore GP chapter as I was lucky enuff to race it and they used many of the same sections but my favorite is MS In Escorial Spain, it’s the reason off road was and still is badass…”

WOLF: BACK IN THE DAY

The year is 2008 and this is an OMA race in, I believe Arkansas. The Team Mechanic Shane Nalley, himself a superb rider set up a Paul Whibley replica for me to race in the morning ‘old guy’ event. To be honest I sucked hard, instant arm pump via the noodles hanging out of my shoulders. The big Suzook was strong, stiff and wanted a man to handle it. I was failing miserably in this category. Eventually I calmed down, switched with Shane mid race to his personal ‘dual sported’ RMZ450 which was way calmed down and a joy to ride. John Gasso snapped the pic!
