This is the original poster (on the livingroom wall of Marilyn Schultz's home) from the event, with a photograph of 2 riders -- Freddie Schultz is in the rear, giving the front rider a push. He was teamed with Fred Wagner for this event but was eliminated on day 6 when he seriously cut his hand braking his bike.
