Baron sez: "On another note: There is a fairly large stock pile of old blank team jerseys waiting for their day! ''THE CLOWN!'' Willie Debosscher! An old 6 day rider has told me about these jerseys! Next step bringing them to market. Willie was known for having fun on and off the track! One of his trade marks! Trowing the red card at unlucky riders as like in soccor."

Man, talk about a flashback. Was anyone else at the LA Six Day in '72 watching Willy on the back of the "devil take the hindmost" with his whistle, picking off the last rider at the last possible second? An absolutely amazing rider and a real inspiration for me to take up track racing.
