Hello severen65, glad to have you here . Did you say velodrome action? That's good for some excitement, for sure!

Welcome to BF!

If you like Classic & Vintage in particular--not so much Road Cycling.

Here's a photo of me in velodrome action (I was racing against myself)



On a mixte, no less!

Go the Knights! I lived in Newcastle for 3 years, (Lambton) and moved back to the US last year. Even worked at Hadley's for a bit. I've got quite a few trackie friends out that way still, but a bit further south, around Gosford. Anyway, good to have you on the forums.

Cheers,

Brian
