Johnny T. was one of my heroes growing up mountain bike racing, and for whatever reason tonight I got to wondering "whatever happened to John Tomac?"
Apparently he is now farming in Colorado, still riding bikes recreationally, and aiding in the design of the Tomac brand of bikes and Kenda tires. Basically the guy is a legend having won every kind of mountain bike race from NORBA cross-country and downhill titles to world cup and world championship races in both disciplines.
It's good to know he's still around and involved in the mountain bike industry. Check out this video of John Tomac in Wales in 2010 from Mpora.com
