Night train....

I just got home from the night train 12 hour race. It was a race but also like a festival with a lot of goofing off and having fun. I didn't race but I spent the whole freakin' 12 hours manning a rd crossing. Hambone's TMCS team took 3rd in 4 man team despite havin to tolerate the slow laps of darkknight.The Sycamor Cycles team took 1st in 4man winnin by 5 or 6 laps. I was able to get a few pics while I worked and I'll throw those up. Next time someone else can work and I'm racing.

Hambone......


and my fav....


Darkknight......



Sycamore Cycles WesD


This guy was nuts.....


they even raced at night.....


We found a Ghetto skate park and got a session in on friday night......

Looks like fun, well maybe... 12 hours seems like a long time to be on a bike.

Very nice. I couldn't manage a 12 hour race. ... I have those same gloves as hambone in the first pic...in the second pic he has different gloves? Good 661 gloves though.
