Jobst's location is known to all, and yet a mystery. Some claim
to have seen him on Mt. Hamilton Rd in the blinding sun, and some
say he emerged from a fog on Skyline. Yet others saw him riding
through a blizzard cresting the Passo di Gavia. I once saw him
on Alpine Road, but perhaps it was a trick of the light, dappled as
I descended in and out of the shade of the trees. On group rides,
grizzled veterans tell stories of how Jobst rode to the summit
of Mount Diablo before there was a road, so long ago that he was
still using tubular tires. Some say there is no Jobst, that it is a
spook story old men make up to frighten children and metallurgists.
Others say that Jobst is an immanence, that every time a rider
breaks a freewheel axle, Jobst is there.

Who am I to judge? Yet I do not think even a Google-derived
website will suffice to answer the question.

This is a blatant attempt to sand bag the post of the year prize.
Please rest assured that the judges will be looking at all of the
submissions throughout the year.

"Spook story" was a nod to this quote:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114814/quotes
scroll down about 2/3 or search for "spook story"

And I really have seen Jobst, or at least an avatar thereof,
on Alpine Road (the flat part down by the creek). He's hard
to miss - he always wears a natty cycling cap, and as I said in
some other thread, is about eight feet tall and rides a seven
foot yellow bike.
