In 1962 at the Czech 250 GP, Torsten saw this unknown rider flying around the track in practice on a Greeves. Not knowing who he was, Torsten was so impressed with this young man's ability he grabbed his camera and went over and took this picture. The young man is none other than Joel Robert!  In later years Torsten and Joel would have some the most fierce battles in motocross history.
