Wow! That's me...

Check out: http://www.betcycling.com/veloplex/veloplex.htm

That picture of the track racer in the background...that's me! I stumbled by the site from a track racing gossip site I visit sometimes.

The veloplex site is run by the most famous track builder in the world, Peter Junek, as well as Ralph Schuermann and Jack Simes. I think my friend Jack Simes had something to do with that picture getting up there...but hey, that site is part of the best in the world!

LoL, well, geez guys, it was just their way to use an awesome background...

Thanks, I think I have a rather nice elbow, also. But, you can't quite admire its beauty under the long sleeve skinsuit.

I was just surprised to see myself on such a well-known site.

So, velo...
Would you be riding in any of the World Cup qualifiers?
I know they are doing it at the velodrome near where I live, you heading down this way?

Riding on one of those tracks has gotta be cool.

I was thinking on traveling to one World Cup qualifiers this year, other than at my home track, but I don't think it is going to materialize. Ft. Lauderdale was one I was looking at, but that event is 5 days, so I know that won't be happening.

That's cool. If your face was visible, courtesy would pretty much require that he ask your permission.
