Stu Thomsen cause a bit of a sensation recently when he returned to the race scene–in old school SE colors, no less–at a USA BMX national in Phoenix.
Stu took home the win in his cruiser class, showing that he still has the horsepower to whup his fellow racers.
But perhaps even cooler than his still awesome racing skills, is his versatility and ability to ride at a high level in so many different types of bike riding.
That’s why I got a little stoked to see a picture surface, right after the Phoenix race, of Stu gettin’ trails-y at the Oakley pumptrack.
It’s a notion that seems to have been lost over the years…run whatcha brung and have a damn good time doing it.
