I seen the dood, but not sure I know who he is.

Is he the same dood, that had a pic in one of the MTB magazines where he raced like the pro cross country on a single speed with moustache bars and got 5th place?

Or is that another larson or larsen?

I first heard of him in 2000 when he was XC Champ.... He was riding for Mongoose/LL Bean. I remember that because i bought the Mongoose Pro Ti bike made by Titamium Sport Technology that he rode to the championship that year. That frame is now my SS bike.
