"Eddie B" as he was known and Dr. Ed Burke were in great part responsible for taking US cycling from an International joke in the late '70's to Olympic Gold by '84 and helped develop the "new" talent of LeMond and the 7-11 boys who took it to the top ranks of European Pro racing with great results. Thank them also for the then "new" scientific/practical oriented OTC that has done so much for rider evaluation, research, training, hardware tech and much more in the last decades.
