Gary Toy, racing on his SuperStock class Lightning Stealth. This bike sports a Rick Wianecke nose cone, and Coroplast body panels, to give him the maximum amount of fairing legal for the SuperStock class. garytoy-northbrook-99.jpg (7120 bytes)
jeffcaswell-northbrook-99.jpg (6123 bytes) Jeff Caswell, on his home made FWD "Micro Bike", with "ShirtFairing" (patent pending). Jeff is currently working on the next version, his "micro-mini bike".
Shean Bjoralt of Earth Cycles, on his production ready RWD low-racer. This is a great handling and fast bike with a 12" seat height, a 16" front wheel, and a 20" rear wheel. It has a comfortable sling seat. It incorporates an intermediary drive, and has a novel optional return chain idler above the front wheel. The idler can be used for plenty of front wheel clearance, or dropped down off the idler for more efficiency (racing mode). sheanbjoralt-northbrook-99.jpg (8224 bytes)
seancostin-northbrook-99.jpg (5443 bytes) Sean Costin, racing on the FWD Monkey-Hand. Everyone complains that they don't get any draft off of Sean. It's easy to see why. Sean won the race.
Thom Ollinger, warming up before the race sans top in his "Tub Bike", a fiberglass/foam monocoque FWD Streamliner.  thomollinger-northbrook-99.jpg (3961 bytes)
