There are a hundred stories behind this picture and they are all good. It's been a couple of months since we lost Chris Yankee but I still think about him every day. The wild moves, the modest reactions, the laughter...it all lives forever in the hearts of those that knew him.
"It's like being a kid on Christmas eve you see the gifts but you can't open them until Christmas. The night before you're so filled with joy and wondering you can't sleep. That's how riding applies to me now. I know I can ride on the weekend but its the waiting, counting down the days and when it's finally here, I have butterflies and get all weak thinking of a new line or some trick."--Chris Yankee, 2003
