Ned Overhead’s Specialized M2

by editors on November 4, 2015

Here’s a little flash back with The Pros’ Closet to XC legend Ned Overend. Back in the 80s, we once wrote a bio of Ned that included the factoid that his nickname was Ned “Overend, over end, over end.” He was not happy with us.

At the time we didn’t know that it was simply a joke passed on to us by John Tomac. With his BMX background Tomac was making fun of Overhead’s road racing style of riding, and taking a shot at him when he had the chance. Seems Overnend had the last laugh that time as he beat Johnny T in the race. If you look closely you’ll see footage from that very race in this video. Enjoy.
