Arrow Indianapolis Team Stormcrowe 2009: We're ready to go!

And it's now up and running. Here's my personal page for Tour de Cure, Indianapolis, for 2009!

http://main.diabetes.org/site/TR/Tou...s_tafId=219246

There's the usual link if you want to join up with Team Stormcrowe for the ride. We'll welcome you happily! Last years members are of course, welcome as well. I'll be setting up a deal for out of town members at a motel near the track again this year as well, but not the Brickyard Crossing, unfortunately, since it's not going to be there. I'm going to set up something that's within riding distance from the track, though.

Great news Tom

I've just sent an email request to the Tour folks to switch me from an individual over to Team Stormcrowe. I told them you would vouch for me if they had any questions.

Cool, since there is a St Louis Chapter of Team Stormcrowe, now, as well, specify
"Indianapolis Team Stormcrowe 2009"

And, I just got my first donation! The member (You know who you are) that did it has my appreciation for getting the ball rolling. Thanks Bro!

I wonder who it was.

Nah, it was me. But only 25 bucks. I know in times like these not everyone can afford to chip in, but everyone who can afford to should consider making a donation. This is a very good cause, and one that I am sure is near and dear to a lot of people. Diabetes is becoming more and more rampant in modern times.

I hope I can make it down for the event, but it's hard to say what my availability will be at that point.

It should go directly to the Indy event. You have to put which event it concerns (via dropdown) beforehand on the email page. So I'll keep my fingers crossed it went the right way.

What happened to the Crossing? I can't remember, but is there a Hampton anywhere near the track? If anyone else has a USAC license, we get 10% off. On another note, I am proud to say Team Stormcrowe has two official members now, & the requirement for the team is to join us one week afterwards of the St. Louis TDC at the track!

Seems to me they basically want to lease the property to one of the chains, and have them build the new one. Of course I'm kind of reading between the lines on that, but it makes sense. I can see suites going in place of regular rooms, which would be nice. Of course that does us absolutely no good this year.

Last year was a Blast for me.

Join me on The Track at a 17 MPH Pace.
That will be my Top Speed.
You won't Burn Out at that speed.

Shoot, I was looking forward to seeing you again and hearing about the racing.

I was also looking forward to seeing everyone again. The team made me feel very at ease for my first time riding with that many people. I will definately planning on the event in the future.

My racing while completely enjoyable is coming to an end due to lack of participation in my area. That is why I must miss the event this year. I will be in Ohio at a Grand National race. I've been racing for over 32 years. I don't know how much longer I'll be competitive against the 18 year old thundercats so I'm really trying for a Grand National event win. Hopefully I get it since I'm making the choice to miss Indy.

I also would opted to do the St. Louis event the week before but have another event that takes priority. My lady's son is going into the Marines that weekend so I will be in California.

So I take this year off and come back stronger in the future . I have joined a health club so combined with the way I trained last year, my goal is to complete the 100 mile event on my next attempt.

How about some tips and advice for the first timers? Can we wear camelbaks? Do we run the entire track? some guys where I work were saying "good luck getting up those banked, 15 degree turns", I didn't think Indy had the high banks like Daytona or Rockingham. What should we do to prepare the night before,-eat,drink(obviously get plenty of sleep) I don't want to take any #2 breaks during the AM like most guys I know do.
