Road bike action had an interview with Ned Overend in October. He talks about being the old man of Mountain bike racing and staying young. <http://www.roadbikeaction.com/Most-Popular-Stories/content/67/6001/How-To-Ned-Overend-On-Staying-Young.html> . Having been in several races with him over the years I can only say that he is someone whom I try to be like and follow his adventures when I can. When he says staying flexable is one of the most important things we can do I only say, Amen! Thanks for being there Ned. And congrats to Bill for his article in RBA.
