Trade Zone photos?

I've seen several folk taking lots of pictures at the Trade Zone races; anyone know where any are posting online?

I logged some solid OTB time today due to various maladies, mistakes, and misfortunes, so without a pack to get in the way, I was up for some good photo ops - and I don't have any good photos of me on my new blingy ride... One guy down on the first corner was holding the shutter release down as I came by at least twice...

I've found
Jim Wilson and Amy Jones... Any others?

(There's my messing about after racing too, for any fortunate B Race folk)

I'm looking for the dude with the dog; I'm convinced he's got a couple of pictures of me attempting to kill myself OTB... no; wait, that's not right, why would I want those?

I have a ton of pictures of the C race that I can upload when I get home from work. If you were in the group that was OTB, I probably have some good pictures of you.

I really dig the PT comp pointed at the camera

As an aside; that's just shows the market penetration Coggan's got.

btw, what's up with that junior from NCVC who was the MD crit champ last season? I can't quite put my finger on it, but something about him just strikes me as abrasive.

I guess that's the 1/2/3 race then. Would explain quite a bit. I'm constantly taken aback by the number of Power-taps / SRMs in these 'training races'.

my SRM never comes off the bike. I record everything.

Actually, some of my best data comes from races.

No big deal...just curious. If its the same junior I'm thinking of, his dad was giving the officials a hard time because he was riding in the main group last week.

I'm a 4 and I have an SRM. I see no reason why I'd take it off my bike...

You miss my (albeit unclear) point. I was remarking about the quantity of Power-based devices that are present in the amateur pelotons that I've seen. This could be because 1> I've not been looking for power-monitors in amateur pelotons. 2> I've not been looking at amateur pelotons.

Either way I find it remarkable.

oh; and I'm a 5 with a power-tap.
