1977 DG Racer Pam Coble
I always see people building bikes that a guy raced, how about something different?
Many many years ago when I was just a wee lad in the old country (San Diego) I went to a race in place called "Las Palmas" (Oddly enough, just a few miles from where I now live) Tis' was a great downhill track with many a great racer and lots of pit tootises.
A great combination. Bikes and girls, How could it get better than this? Then I spotted her, a beauty wearing an Encinitas BMX Club jersey. She came up to the gate right before the hacks. Talk about beauty and the beasts. She took off like thunder and swept through the berms. She was not only as fast as the boys, she did it with style. I knew she was the one for me. I had seen her before but this time I got enough courage to talk to her in the next moto.
I'll never forget our conversation: "Ahh, duh, Hmm! Hi Pam" She looked at me with her blue eyes(well, I think she had blue eyes,) saw my endless admiration in my eyes, Tilted her head to one side, saw my name on my tattered Honda Jersey and she said "Hi..umm Rick" and took off for her next race.
Later in the day, I was sitting by the second turn and Pam came flying through. An evil dastardly sandy area caught her front wheel and she went down right in front of me. I helped her get up and almost dusted off the front of her jersey but common sense prevailed. She gave me a quick thanks and went off to pursue her competition. She said something about "see you later."
Ahh Yes, the memories.
