  • I remember hearing before seeing John Tomac bombing down the Norba race course at Mt Snow 25 years ago on that crazy disc wheel. The disc never caught on. Neither did racing MTB on drop bars, which he tried for a while.

    Tomac was the most exciting CC racer in the world back in the day. Everyone else kept their wheels on the ground back then. He was also the last American champion of his era.
