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.

(sorry it's taken me a while to get back to my OWN post here! work's been nuts.)

thanks for the leads, guys; I really, really appreciate it.

and elares? if you could do that, I'd forever be in your debt! want a LiveStrong bracelet? just got my backorder filled; my baggie of goodies arrived yesterday. PM me, and we can get this thing going.

thanks again!

-alex.

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!!!
