Hi James,
I just ran across this photo online. I remember losing this sprint to Mike that day in Oregon. I think the date is either 1970 or 71. 1976 was my last season after having raced in Europe for 4 years. Great shot. How can I get a copy? I digital file would be great.
I'm a commercial photographer myself. Let me know how you would like to do this.
Regards, Bill Kund
