Yep, that's an aspect I like about HPV racing, too. People come out to try their own ideas, not just to burn each other's legs off. There was about a 3-to-1 ratio in the speed of the tandem racers... that is, John & Margaret (below) were about 3 times as fast as Gary and Judy Dinsmore (bottom). Everyone had fun.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
