Okay, here is a bit of a brain teaser. You will probably have to be an old timer to cipher this one. Speaking of which, who remembers when there were no vets or seniors, just old timers?
This photo is from a Christmas Valley Oregon race, ca 1976. I can’t imagine any of you were ever at a race there, lots of big sand dunes. Main frame is Gordon White with the famous orange jacket. Behind is Lanny Almaras in the yellow Penton jersey. You can just see my right hand holding the Can-Am.
By the way, I still have the yellow Penton jersey and use it in photos once in a while. Gordon still has the orange jacket and I also still have the Hi Point boots that Lanny is wearing.
Now back to the action. Just what exactly is going on in this photo? The scene makes perfect sense if you should happen to know. Otherwise it looks a little confused. So throw me your best guess.
