The "age" record for a National event win was set at Louisville last year by Phares Parson of Georgia at age 78.

If you're in good shape and can handle it then, why not?!?  I figure I'll only be too old when I'm dead.  Until then, lets ride!cool

Phares is one cool dude.  I met up with him several years back at a Dixieland Nationals BMX show in Atlanta.  He said he started racing at 50!!!yikes

Gave me some awesome inspiration.

Wanted- White Industries Freewheel 19T and 20T, and Big Gulp bars- because I think they look goofy enough to cruise with!
