25 years ago ESPN used to broadcast the epic battles between legends like Overend, Tomac, and Juarez straight into living rooms across the country. This coverage helped catapult these racers to fame and their names and bikes have achieved an almost mythical status in mountain biking history.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of one the most well known battles, the 1990 Mountain Bike World Championships in Durango, The Pro’s Closet visited Ned Overend. In this entertaining video, Ned talks candidly about his equipment, its flaws, and his racing strategies.
