Jim Gianatsis was also an AMA professional motocrosser. Here he is racing his Yamaha DT2 at a local motocross track in Florida in 1972 with his then AMA regional #19L. The following year1993 his AMA National Number was 619. He did race in one AMA National that year in Georgina and earned enough point s to garner AMA National #100 for 1974. Jim's Cycle News race coverage duties never allowed him to race a National with #100, but he did keep the number until his AMA Pro License lapsed in 1978 and AMA gave #100 to Bob Hannah when the former AMA Championing returned to racing after a year off from broken leg injury to begin racing again in 1979.
