It was 1978 and Alex was just 14. This was during the Schwinn BMX Tour with races extending from Oklahoma through the southern states and ending in Florida. He was a factory team rider for Robinson Racing and had just competed in the Oklahoma Nationals. Photo’s at grandpa Clyde’s house in Woodward, Oklahoma. And that’s his beaming mom. Racing in Shawnee, he had taken First Place in Expert Class. They can’t make trophies much bigger because they bend.
Great trip, great bonding and got to see Ft. Sill, where his dad and Geronimo spent some time.
