March 1932 In Its 20th Year!
The world of sport loves close finishes. Those who follow the motorcycle hillclimbing sport are going to get a big thrill out of every event in which two of California’s finest sons fight it out to the last foot and the last second for there isn’t more than an inch or a split second between them.
These boys are “Windy” Lindstrom, whose intense but smiling visage appears in the upper left hand corner of this space and Gene Rhyne, the young Apollo in the lower right corner. Lindstrom hails from Oakland and Rhyne from Sacramento. One chooses to ride a Harley-Davidson and the other has selected the Indian to carry him up in the world.
At the recent Hollywood Motorcycle Club hillclimb these boys fought a friendly but terrific battle on one of the country’s toughest hills and they both made such remarkable records that we are dividing the honors between them. They both showed unusual riding ability and hill sense. Read the complete report of their hill feud in this issue.-H.B.R.
