Aquarian Powder coaters right? Don Bradshaw

 

 

 

Krystal jammed! She won the 11 and under class at the infamous Weinert mountain Supernationals in 77

 

Mrs Hill (Liz Torres) in a rare mistake...She won the 12 and over girl's class. When these two raced against each other, it was just as intense as the older experts.

 

According to J.U, Krystal was running the office in the late 90s and was very hot! :)

Also let's not forget two VERY early pioneers. Lesley Kemp and and Crissie Twomey. Both riding for Rick's Bike Shop. Crissie was actually racing when she was 4 years old back in 73.

In south Louisiana in the early 1980s, Gaby Bayhi was like that... I can remember boys laughing and joking when she got on the gate in their open mains... and the crying afterward... having to be consoled by mom and dad... :whistling:

P.S. The only reason Gaby never beat me is that I was fortunate enough to be older. :Power.Grin:
