Chann McRae. Rode for Saturn, Mapei – QuickStep, Mercury – Viatel, and US Postal Service. Won the 2002 United States National Championship.

And, he can fight.

I slept on this post all week. has a article up. You can read it here:

Update: I knew I had a pic of this kid somewhere. I’ve got a book at home, a big old coffee table book. Graham Watson photographs. Shit is boss. McRae is in there.

Check out this shot of him pulling his brains out for Pavel Tonkov 1 in the 2000 Giro, where he did pretty well for himself 2. You think this guy knows how to suffer?


You’re god damn right he knows how to suffer.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Steel cage death match should be a cakewalk, after the mountain stages that he rode.

  2. Fiyah! Good to see an ex-pro whose life didn’t go to pieces after stopping.

    Here’s a partial list:

    Kirk Willett – medical school.
    Chad Gerlach – homeless junkie, then pro, now a dad and an amateur racer.
    Andy Hampsten – leads italy tours, bottles his own olive oil, still one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet. word on the street a few years ago was that Michael Barry could not drop him on training rides.

    anyone else?
