anyone remember this poster?

once upon a time, years and years ago, I saw a poster (by Nike?) that had a cyclist in b&w going from camera left to camera right, and the caption said, "Eat right, drink lots of water, get lots of sleep, go like hell."

at least, that's how I remember it.

does anyone remember that one? I've googled around without any leads, so I was hoping one of you guys might remember it.

thanks!

alex.

It was "EAT RIGHT. GET LOTS OF SLEEP. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS. GO LIKE HELL."
Other than that I don't know where you'll find a copy.

I remember the t-shirt but not the poster. I think it might have been part of their Mark Allen campaign.

I have that poster hanging in my garage. Very inspirational. The bike is a white Kestral.

The bike says Schwinn, but that looks like an early Kestral frame to me. One of the first carbon fiber frames widely available. Anyone know better, please enlighten me.
GoodCatJack, I hope that's what you had in mind.

woohoo!!! holy majoly. thank you so much; I never thought I'd see that one again. and you know, isn't it funny how things can look totally different from a person's memory? I mean, it's like seeing it for the first time all over again, if that isn't too Yogi Berra of me to say so.

thanks again!!!
