I sure have! He was/is a beast..I met him briefly at a Colonial Classic back in the early 90s I think. Didn't he used to ride for Banania and Raleigh? He married a Kiwi woman and settled here, I believe.

Yep and friggen fast in a relative :satan: straight line. Rumour has it that he has done a "fergie" and piled on the pounds and is no longer riding at all. He has settled somewhere in NZ with his chick. He was at the AIS with my brother and me at different times. Good guy :thumbsup: If anyone has contact details im sure my bro and the McGee's would like to catch up
