Did you guys see that they found maybe something like 125,000 western lowland gorillas in a very secluded place in the Republic of Congo in Africa? It made my day. Maybe week/month. I didn’t realize how worried I was about the gorilla situation until I heard of this discovery. It is very rare that something like this happens nowadays. It goes to show you how big the planet is and that there are still places above the water’s surface that haven’t been altered by man’s dominance. There are less than 700 mountain gorillas left in the wild still. Their numbers are being reduced to make charcoal. Anyway, this discovery a good thing.
A rider from Iowa sent me this photo from the Coor’s Race. It’s from BikeMonkey.net. The riders left to right are Davis Phinney, Thomas Prehn, Bernard Hinault, Jacques Boyer, Greg LeMond, and then obscured me.
And, Road Bike Action in January had an article on ads from the 1980’s. Below is a Raleigh ad of a race I won in Walnut Creek California, The Coor’s Devil Cup. Teammate Hugh Walton was 2nd. A good payday for sure.
