Great fun last night. I didn't take as many photos - too busy enjoying myself. And, I spent a lot of time trying to get used to toelips and the new cleats from Yellow Jersey. It's been a lot of years since I've gone that route but, at least, for the night it gave some relief to a nerve issue in my right foot.
Great mix of bikes - Ms. Patina, my old Pug PL8, Matt's Singer (my first time seeing it and I was really looking forward to that) and Jeff's gorgeous Colnago (that got more than one "wow" from fans at the races afterward). Temps were in the low 80's and the trail wasn't as busy this year as last when we did this. What I didn'r realize until I looked it up yesterday morning is the velodrome was having it's annual Grand Prix race so there was some top level talent there from around the west coast, Canada and even a rider from New Zealand.

A really sweet Schwinn Super Sport that was there (in spite of the red chainring)
The kids races were a blast to watch:
Sarah Hammer - Olympic silver medallist in front. Race 1 of 3 in the matched sprint finals. She had a great night also winning the 30+ lap miss-n-out race
