Photo of the Day: Zap In the Saddle, Breaking Conventions Yet Again

IMGL5249zap750Road Bike Action editor and Mountain Bike Action editorial advisor Zapata Espinoza flies into a corner at Castaic, California, in last year’s Over the Hump race series. Note the drop bars on the bike. We guess those bars might technically make this a gravel-grinder fat bike, or something like that, but it’s hard to pigeonhole it. Longtime MBA readers may remember when the legendary John Tomac raced the pro class 25 years ago with drop bars on his mountain bike to reduce wind resistance on long descents.
