(from Scrambles?) Walt Axthelm, 23 years old,1956 D-37 desert #1 heavyweight- far left-on a BSA Goldstar.  Walt rode for Louie Thomas at Modern Cycle Works in East L.A. At that time, desert and scrambles points were combined and you were given an overall desert/scrambles number.  Notice the bikes are not dusty- Walt says most likely this pic was taken at a scrambles, not a desert event.  #2 is Chuck "Feets" Minert  who rode for LeBard & Underwood.  #4 is Charlie Cripps
