A true staple of the Colorado downhill scene, Dave Ziegman, handles the 17 with much grace while at his workspace at Yeti Cycles. Dave tests bikes, works on bikes, tinkers with bikes and makes sure Yeti owner, Chris Conroy, knows how to fly fish without a twill shirt. Ziegman was on Big Crank Racing for years and has a raw, natural style on the bike. Enjoy this 17 questions and be glad you're not his body...or bike.
This photo of Ziegman from Lake Arbor trails in 2003 is the reason I pursued MTB photography. I had never used a flash, it was on slide film and when the photo came back successful, I didn't want to stop taking pictures. Thanks Dave!
Finally, enjoy a photo of DZ from that epic day at Minersville in 2005 that none of us present will ever for get. -gordo
