#throwbackthursday: Klunking, mountain biking in the 70s

Words by William French | Images by William French

This segment, Klunking, is from the late 1970s, hosted by Steve Fox, and comes from the Paul Colardo (an Evening Magazine crew member) collection. This is one of the first segments that Paul produced.

Steve Kotton was the cameraman on this shoot and remember having to climb up the steep hillside. There was also a lawsuit against KPIX brought by one of the riders. He claimed that the camera crew were in the middle of the road and he crashed. He lost the lawsuit because the video clearly showed the side of the track location of the crew.

It is believed this piece was edited by Jim Farney.
