Mike McGill, Täby, Sweden 1984

Summer Camp 1984, Täby, Sweden

Das muss ein oder zwei Tage vor seinem ersten McTwist gewesen sein.
Die Vertramp im Summercamp hatte für die damalige Zeit riesen Transitions, ich glaube 3,50 Meter oder etwas mehr. 2,80 - 3,00 Meter war damals Standard.
Ich glaube Lance Mountain hat seine backyardramp umgebaut sobald er wieder zuhause war, weil er die großen Transitions als besser erkannte.
McGill hatte unglaublichen Power und die feuchte Luft in der Woche im Summercamp machte ihm scheinbar gar nix aus, er kam ja aus Florida.
Es gab dort unglaublich viele Moskitos (in Schweden)

This must have been one or two days before his first McTwist.
The vertramp at the Summercamp had unusually large transitions for this period. I think 3,50 Meters or a little more. 2,80 - 3,00 Meters were standard back then.
I believe Lance Mountain remodeled his backyard ramp once he returned home because he realized the big transitions worked better.
McGill had unbelievable power and was not at all harmed by the moist climate there probably because he was from Florida. The area was full of moskitos.
