Join the legendary John Tomac for a ride before HD cameras, before full suspension and disc brakes, before there were twelve different styles of bikes for different terrain. This is the best of film making and mountain biking from back in the mid-1990s.

    And here we have why Gwinn's been dominating. After Mr. Tomac makes him ride DH all winter long on a bike like this, World Cup tracks on his 8 inch Session feel like straight asphalt roads haha.

    On a serious note, my pride on my riding abilities just went down tenfold and I feel like a sissy with my 6 inch enduro bike.

    I remember when he was riding pro road races and mountain bikes during the same season. He would ride his mountain bike with drop bars!

    He retired much too early - A lot of guys did, figuring it's a young man's sport - Look at Steve Peat - he can still run with the best of them at what - 39 this year. I'm sure Johnny T. wished he stayed in the game - Man the guy would destroy Enduros!
