That was hot.

It was great to see your guys working for you when you were OTF. I know it hasn't always been that way. In the break, it looked like Mr. Air Attack was a liability.

Hubba hubba. I pity the guy behind Ex when he is drilling it IAB.

Thanks for the video on Sunday, Hermes. Helped me get splits, and check form/position, etc. Speaking of form, it seemed like most of the Hellyer crowd had really good starting technique.

Hermes 06-26-13 03:18 PM

Your welcome.

Here are the videos from the 500 m TT from the back stretch and two kilos. The first kilo is by the VSC hotshot who does it in 1:07. He also did an 11.1 flying 200 earlier that morning. Plus he a s great pursuitist. Vance is the last kilo.

I finally got to watch it, and was thinking the same thing: "It's not the helmet."

Been there, done that... saved me 3bpm at the most, and that's with Ex slapping his butt letting me know to just hang on for a lot of it.

No, I don't think Thurlow was there at all. In fact, it didn't look like the Breaking Away from Cancer (Amgen) Masters team had much of a presence on Sunday.

The guy wearing the Air Attack helmet is one of the Parks brothers. Generally they are pretty strong. Ex's other break companion, Gary Wall, is a strong and steady wheel. He is also pretty selfless as a teammate. It was pretty cool watching the break from the sidelines. Good thing the video didn't catch me yelling, "Allez, allez!" :o

That UCC train at 2-to-go looked awesome. I've seen them pull it off a couple of times for Big M. Unfortunately it didn't quite work on Sunday.

Like AzTR, I got my share of experience hanging on to Ex at the Pasadena Senior Games.

Here's a couple of videos with me in them:

Kool N Fit (Chris Cono Memorial) Criterium

SCNCA Master 55+ District Criterium Championship

In both videos, I have the white helmet. My teammate, who is generally at the back, has the mostly black helmet.

Good stuff, Cleave!!

sarals 07-29-13 01:29 PM

Lap 4 of the Menlo Park WM45+ crit. I'm towards the back of the front pack, left side.

I rarely do Masters races as I prefer the easier Cat 3 races. When I do Masters I try to do the 45+ since they're easier than the 35+. On this day I had 4 teammates doing the 35+ and zero doing 45+ so I decided to do the 35+. Very unlike me but it worked out.

Thanks for the assist [MENTION=196014]shovelhd[/MENTION].

Nice vid, Aki.

Hermes 11-25-13 05:38 PM

I will give an OMG.

Best line ever, "how does Danny Hart sit down with balls so big?"

Very carefully.

Hermes 11-25-13 06:24 PM

I counted 4 waves to the camera. No hands would have been god like.

Cleave 11-25-13 11:48 PM

And they say the British are staid and reserved. Cup o' tea?

Racer Ex 11-25-13 11:59 PM

A little motorized two wheel race from Cav's home:

[video=youtube;j7HlrI1COSs]http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=j7HlrI1COSs[/video]

Not sure "balls" even covers this. I did Moto GP for a bunch of years and this makes my hair stand up.

Allegheny Jet 11-26-13 06:13 AM

That race is crazy. I remember seeing a sidecar division back in the Speed Channel days. Guys making a turn at 100+ mph with ass 1" from the road.

Hermes 11-26-13 10:09 AM

Swimming with Mako sharks looks like an upside.

Allegheny Jet 11-26-13 11:43 AM

This is for you guys and gals who ride tandem.

The Isle of Mann TT is such a throwback to the days where motorcycle and car racers died regularly that I am amazed that it still happens. While the general safety record in motorsports has improved by leaps and bounds (thankfully) the Isle of Mann TT continues to be dangerous because of the nature of the circuit. It's thrilling to watch on video or TV but I also cringe while watching it.
