Training Camp and Olympics

This highly visible photo of me racing in the '76 Montreal Olympics has recently appeared here in Pez Cycling. The photo was taken by my long-time friend, Ted Furtado.  Ted was not given due credit for the photo, so I wanted to be sure he got it.   
Bernt Johansson spent most of this race on my wheel, then went on to win after my crash in the rain.  We had raced together in Sweden the year before.

In the group shot here, Ted sits on the railing in blue stripes. This photo appeared in my book, "Mastering Cycling" showing The Dorset Training Group, America's first ever cycling camp started by Anne Cram in Vermont in 1975.  (Photo by Anne Cram)

Thanks, Ted, for your friendship over the years and the entire series of historic shots!
