Scanned: Gary Ellis’ Suicide No Hander

This pic of Gary Ellis firing out a suicide no hander at the trails had a lot of people talking. You didn’t see shit like this from top AA pros unless their initials happened to be BF. I’m not exactly sure when this came out, but if I had to guess I’d say like 97-98. It was definitely towards the end of Gary’s career. He went out with a bang, winning a bunch of races and even the NBL Grands. This picture that Keith Mulligan shot for Gary’s Snap interview was the icing on the cake! Take note of the motorcycle helmet, impeccable facial hair, combination kneepad/shinguards, pedals that could cut a man clean in half, Nike basketball shoes, and the pile of trash and scrap that wouldn’t in a million years fly with trail nazis today.
