How come youre not in this?

"How come you're not in this?"

Phil was a great guy and was concerned about every young rider. As he lined them up for the start he saw me shooting pictures and walked over. "How come you're not in this?" The last time I'd ridden the Rose Festival Race was 19 years earlier, when I was 16. But he was right, I should have continued racing.

The rider with the Celo Europa jersey is Karl Maxon. I remember that he went from being cat 4 to cat 2 in about 3 months when he started. He was a fantastic time-trialer, beating Ron Wagner and I when we won the Sauvie Island 2-man TT even though he rode alone. I believe he held the record for the longest Giro break-away.
Dave Auker is the BBC rider to the right and Tim Rutledge the taller one in the center, with Alann Pearson to his right.
