Subject: [CR]Major Taylor's book

Today "The Fastest Bicyle Rider In the World" book arrived. There were two of Major's obituaries pasted inside which subdued the trill of holding the book temporarily, but reminded me of the hardships this great champion endured in his final years. Would like to leave you with a quote from the book, “He is a perfect wonder on the wheel, which he rides much easier than any other rider on the track, and yet he always seems to have a reserve force that would land him a winner.”

Haven't ridden in over a week now, but did get to talk to John Tomac Sunday after the NORBA Downhill. Anyone remember when he was training while on the road team and his team mates encouraged him to do a wheelie? Great all around rider as well as person. To young folks he is vintage.
