Mo's (right front, red & yellow Cannondale) Movie debut
"Practical Magic" filmed the spring of 1998 in Coupeville, Washington
We were told to "animate" to give the impression of speed though we had to ride against our brakes in our pixie rings. As you can see I'm getting into the part and really pegged the "character." It took us all day and dozens of takes for a few seconds in the movie. It was fun and they fed us well. I'm available for "Breaking Away 2" ... Just call my agent ;^)
