Here's a shot of Brian Lopes from this past spring, racing the Pro Downhill class
at the Sea Otter. His outfit is far from conventional, but it makes a lot of sense.
It was way more aerodynamic than most downhill racing outfits, and it seemed like
it worked. Lopes finished fourth in the event. That's not too shabby for a guy who
will turn 40 this year.
