If we did have nude photos of him, you’d have them by now, as would the far reaches of the interwebs. But, alas, we have nary such a shot. Just some questions and bad photos Dave took.
He’s a tough one to corral, and even quieter once you do (note his answers) but we felt it time to turn the tables on Pat Malach, the guy that makes us all in OBRA feel famous with his website : Oregon Cycling Action. He’s the guy with the really great racing photos. The timely interviews. The intrepid figure standing in shit weather to document OBRA and it’s racing highlights. The guy that quietly does so much for us finally gets asked the hard questions. Ok, not really. They’re pooftie questions. But hey, you gotta show your love for guys like this!
What was the impetus behind OCA?
Have you been talking to my doctor?
How long did you race in OBRA?
Three or four seasons. My first race was in Montana. Two fields: men and women.
Do you still hold a license?
Yes. Cat 3 on the road and Cat 4 on the track
What would it take to get you to pin a number on again?
I’m waiting for a phone call from Lance and Johan.
Where did you grow up?
Can bacon solve the world’s problems?
There are no problems, only solutions, and bacon is a big part of most of them.
Strangest thing a pro ever told you?
“Please don’t send any photos of me VeloNews or CyclingNews.” (He was using a non-sponsor disc wheel in a TT)
Favorite rock band of all time?
Depends on when you ask. I’m currently on a Rush kick.
Would you vote for Candi Murray in 2012 and NOT send those chamsquatches back to Washington?
