    Looks like a sweet track.

    But:

    a) is the rail made of barb wire?!

    and

    b) is it built in some dude's backyard?

    Reminds me of homemade half-pipes from back in the day.

    Nice pic great position. Finally you guys get to ride on the velodrome after all the bad weather. Looks like a great day.

    okay so now there's a flaw in my train plan...


    the velodrome's rail is not made of barbed wire, but it is in a really bad part of town. We have a running game of count the "zombie" (zombie is a nickname for the local meth addicts). We have had a number of break ins, with the most recent one resulting in a fire.

    Hermes: that bike actually isn't mine, it's just a rental bike that i have since taken as my own (actually the president of the board gave it to me when i started my project with the track. I don't know if i have to give it back just yet )

    I asked because the apron looks like hell. It's barely a year old.

    lol. I "stayed with" my GF for 4 years while she went to Johns Hopkins. I visited, she visited, etc. Anyway, it went really well. (though I know she cheated on me, and I her, but what are you going to do?)

    Anyway, we moved in together when she got into Stanford Law. It turns out we both really liked our long-distance relationship. All the security of thinking you were in a relationship, none of the managing the day-to-day. Occasional hot, hungry, sex. Thems were the days.

    Anyway, in CA we lasted about 6 weeks, I moved out a month later and here I am still! Maybe JKS _should_ pursue it!

    I raced against you a couple of times this year (Fayetteville and Charter Reserve).

    Great lookin' position. And a fast time! Imagine how fast that TTT would've been if rider #3 in that picture was actually aero!

    thanks. if there is one cycling skill I will give myself credit for, it's trying really really hard. I'm a little bummed to see these pics and know in my head I still need to be 8-10lbs lighter to compete at the hillclimbs in p12.



    but then I see a pic like this from the 10-min break between races and remember that the difference between winning and losing is pretty negligible in the overall scheme of things.



    credit: father-in-law again.
