My new project - Winning, July 1991 - Issue 92

You may be shocked to learn that I have a pretty serious collection of magazines from the late 80's and early 90's. Its true. My name is Jeremy, and I'm a packrat.

The biggest problem with having a ton of magazines is knowing whats in them. There aren't really any online sources that'll tell you what's in the July 1991 issue of Winning, for instance. So to that end, I'm going to read a magazine a day (or at least, try to) on my travel to and from work, take a picture of the cover, and then post a quicky synopsis here. Then I'll know where to look to find pictures of a 17 year old George Hincapie if I ever need them, and you'll know what issue to bug me about if you want info on the Tour du Pont 1991.

Winning, July 1991. Issue 92

Let us know when you come across the Bobke column where he writes how his entry fee into the Tour of Texas is a paper sack full of weed.

Ps. Welcome back, we've missed your postings.

Hello. I'm a big Greg LeMond fan and am looking for this magazine for a while. I'm interested in the article about the Dupont Tour and the one about Greg LeMond. Is it possible you could scan them and mail them to me ? You can find my mail address in my google account I used to add this comment. Thank you very much.
