Nice article about the “iron man” Mike Harth. Anybody who knew Mike knew he had a temper but he had a bigger heart than that.
He was a great friend, a great rider, and an even greater human.
There was a good part of the story on Mike in the article regarding his issues with being protested.
Hippie and Mike were fixtures at my home each June for a few years between race weekends.They would help with any projects around house and were great guests. Many,many funny stories came out of those times.If you thought Mike was aggresive on the racetrack you should have seen him on the golf course.I remember barrel rolling a golfcart down a hill once.
Thank you for the memories Cycle News and to the Rider Files.
Yes, excellent article about MH–what a great guy. And the Jake Johnson interview rocks as always, too, LL! Great to at least see CN back in my mailbox, even if it isn’t the one at the curbside. Long live Cycle News! And Godspeed Mike Harth…..
Thanks much for the kind comments and Jeff – too bad we didn’t have cellphone video back then. Sounds like there would have been some classic footage from those days.
