Jeff Zielinski, www.ridebmx.com: Bruce Crisman won gold in Street at the 2001 X Games and a few days later when we were both at Woodward, Bruce asked if I'd shoot a photo for a Diamondback ad. The ad was going to hype up Bruce's win and show him riding street with the medal on. The ad ran in issue 68 and the ribbon is visible, but his hand blocked the actual medal. I think a lot of people never got the gist of it.
