This is one of my favorite pictures of Rick Brune, the man who has ridden the second most laps on Lookout Mountain (4000+). The lines in his face are wisdom lines. He does not talk a lot, but it is worth listening when he does talk. He is recovering from a zero mile an hour bicycle tumble earlier in the summer which made the decision to have his hip replaced and easy one.

If you ever have a chance to talk to Jenga from Kenya, it will be a good experience. He is very friendly and very interesting. Just look for the fellow with a big smile and a dark complexion.
