Spies_Lawson.jpgKnow the show “Iconoclasts,” the one where one celebrity interviews another? Yamaha‘s just done something similar with Ben Spies and Eddie Lawson. Genius. Did you know that Eddie was the first non-development rider to ever try upside-down forks?

Update: Part two added below!

    I was lucky enough to get to spend a good part of ’90 photographing the Yamaha Marlboro Team for Italian Vogue, I still have the pix, and one day will publish them. Eddie was my favorite rider, so I was super thrilled to get to spend time around him & the team off season and at the track. Sadly it was the season he was injured in practice at Laguna, after which he would not win another championship.
