Thanks for posting that video. I raced frequently with John in the early 90's at various races up and down Colorado's front range. He was a quiet, unassuming guy with awesome ability on the bike and a potential that was sadly unfulfilled when he died. As a time trialist he was indeed on a par with the best (and in Colorado in those days that meant Bostick, Engleman, the Grewals, Vaughters and various other pro/national level cyclists, but he was also a good road racer and pretty handy at riding up hills. The last race I did with John was the Pagosa Springs stage race and he got up and down Wolf Creek pass as well as anyone. He was a lot bigger than me, and I sat on his wheel the whole way down and even then was struggling and spun out in a 53/12.
