1991, i was coming off of road racing (aka, fed up with it) and mountain bikes seemed like the logical next step. lance voyles and i rolled down to quivira scout ranch in sedan kansas with mark janike. we hooked up with dk, trevor norland and brian kelley, along with scott bowens. This was pre-snort and the first time I'd met brian. we pretty much rocked it and next spring team snort was born. we stopped in some small town in kansas and it had a bike shop. guy asked us what kind of bikes we had on the car. i said "two fats and an ibis." he looked at me like i was speaking a foriegn language. "no" he said, "what make, what model?" we just laughed and drove on. janike later taught me the finer points of eating raw ramen.
