“Alex Bernhardt from Chicago, Illinois will be riding a 1920 Excelsior. See the May / June issue of the Antique Motorcycle for a great write up on Alex and his bike.
Stewart Maclellan from Belleville Ontario, Canada will be riding his grandfather’s 1921 Excelsior. He is the underdog in my book because he is newer to the restoration process and riding old bikes, plus he has a wonderful family history with the bike. So far, he has proven that he is up to the task! Go Stewart!
Hans Coertse from Pietermaritzburg So Africa will be riding a 1923 Excelsior. Hans has competed in the Motorcycle Cannonball 3 times and was the overall winner in 2014 on a '24 Scout. He is by far the most experienced rider of the bunch.
Gene Harper, from Denver Colorado will be riding a 1924 Excelsior and is the organizer of this ride, sometimes being referred to as the instigator by other members of the group. He and wife Jan completed the 2018 Cannonball on the 24 Chief and sidecar and has been riding antique bikes since the late 70's.
Bill Maron from Evergreen Colorado will be our support crew, driving the truck and trailer with all our gear, parts and tools and bringing up the rear for us, covering our ass for sure!
John Olsen from Madison WI will be traveling along on his own to photograph and document our journey. John is also a seasoned rider and understands the inevitable "issues" that may arise in a group ride.”
