Mr Springsteen

Dear CR

Thanks for another great issue of Classic Racer. Your article on Jay Springsteen was awesome… but you failed to mention that #9 still road races! He’s been riding an XR at the Barber Vintage festival for the last few years and does really well.


It’s easy to see why he’s accumulated so many fans over the years as he’s not only brilliant on a bike, but totally approachable and ‘just another racer’ in the paddock.

Thanks again for such a great magazine. Best in the business!

Thanks for your letter and the photos Pat! So glad you liked the article and thanks for keeping us sweet on what the great man is like to deal with on a weekend-by-weekend basis. It’s such a nice thing to hear that such a legend is still a ‘regular’ guy and is as much in love with riding bikes (still) as the rest of us. TC
