How about the infamous Bermuda Triathlon of the Stars, one-peice tri-suits, those contraptions
that held your shoes open for easy slip-in during transitions, Bud Light Detroit, 10-speed
bikes, wool jerseys, wooden rims,...

I think I got 7 out of the 10 questions.
What does that make me? An official r.s.t. Mammoth, sable-toothed tiger or
what?

And does anybody remember Mike Plant's Triathlon newsletter?  What was
that called?

I subscribed to that newsletter!!  I think Plant also wrote the best book
on the sport ever with his "Iron Will".  I didn't realize how far back I
went!  I actually have the first copy of TRIATHLON magazine with Dave
Scott winning the Oct 82 race on the cover.  I do have the Ironman on
videotape since 1987 in case anyone is looking and actually have a bit of
the Feb 82 film that Bruce Dern did that year.  Anybody have the race
from1983 to 86 on tape?  Good luck to those racing this weekend! SBRMJM  
(I also have some old red gripshifts from 88 in case any body is opening
that Tri-antique shop!)

Uh-oh!  Have one of these in my apartment.  After an unfortunate
encounter with a Lincoln, it is now my turbo-trainer bike!

Ulrich,

If you got 7 out of 10, I guess that makes you a "BoomerSaur."  Do you
drive a BMW?

It was called The Plant Report. I, too, was a subscriber.

Heck no, and I still race in it. Look for me in Phillie, Wilkes-Barre,
and Muncie in the fl***orange, yellow, and white tri-suit!

All right already!

Yes I admit it, I remember it all.

Now tell the truth, you never did throw that tri-suit away, did you?

Good Old Days.

Circa 1989's prizes:  Reeboks, Timex(2), Bolle Killer loops (2 pair,)
gear bags, money!(Leon's.)

Circa 1995:  3 plaques.  Not to complain, I like all the little ribbons
I can get, but it was fun giving my family and even the bike mechanic
little and not so little gifts.
