From the archives: Adams and Hegg at Long Beach, 1992...

Kenny Adams of the Spago-Rossin team in front of Chevrolet-LA Sheriff's Steve Hegg during the old Long Beach Criterium series, race #4, I believe in 1992. The Spago team, with various co-sponsors was a major player on the domestic cycling scene in the early 1990s with some high profile riders including Scott McKinley, Andy Bishop, James Urbonas, the Swiss rider Herbert Neiderberger, Nathan Dahlberg, Italian Stefano Bianchini, and Bobby Julich, as well as Adams. They had some quality results, but like most of the domestic teams of the time were often competing in the tailwind of the powerhouse Coors Light team.

Update: it was the 5 of July, 1992 to be exact. Hegg, Adams and Brian Seguin also of the Chevrolet-LA Sheriff team lapped the field, Hegg took the win, Adams finished second.
