Clyde/Athena Race Rigs, your pictures here!

OK, I know a few of us race, and I'd like to see your setup! Here's mine.....Black Beauty, still a bit dirty from my Triathlon, wearing her number.

Dirt from a triathlon only enhances the beauty of the bike, especially when displaying a racing number as well!

I stripped down my commuter to what is shown in the picture and raced in the May 08' Horse Country Time Trial in the recumbent division, and yes there were 2 other recumbents (non clyde). Won by 14 seconds fenders/rack and all. Small hills on the course but not close enough to be rolling hills.


12 days till the July edition and I think there are going to be 7-8 recumbents there so I think I'm going to get roasted.

This is me chasing down a break about 2 weeks ago. I ended up about 18th place in the race (75+ starters). I'm looking for a better pic of my ride.

Ah...here's a better one. About 4-5 weeks ago. Me & this junior kid broke away. I didn't have much left in the tank as I had raced a 40-minute crit immediately beforehand and this was my second consecutive race. We stayed away for about 15-20 mins until 2-laps to go. I was relegated to last place because I took a hand-up of a water bottle after I dropped mine (against the rules). That was okay, as I was pretty well gassed and rolled across the line in last place anyway after a crash wiped out 3 guys and slowed/stopped 3 others
