    to answer your question i think an evening thing would me more appropriate. perhaps have the starting heats/timed riders going off about an hour before the sun sets then finishing up in the dark (bring your lights)? leaves enough time for a few beers and a trackstand comp.
    Lets do it up. Perhaps a trial run is in order. Wouldn't take long at all to organize. Do one maybe mid-May. If it works out well we can organize another one later to be part of the series. I can take care of the prize end. Just figure out a date and get a flyer happening. Who wants to nominate themselves for the flyer/artwork end? A thankless job with no recompense...JACKPOT!! I can draw stick figures if no-one wants it

    We could do a broader invitational to folks on BF. Just curious about the last alley-cat. Is the turnout for that typical? Or is it just "big ticket" events that draw?

    you mean like these guys?

    from what i understand a lot of euro messengers are in fact semi-pro racers in training, supplimenting their racing income with messenger work. i remember hearing that in the last CMWC in NYC, a few of the americans were pointing out the fact that they didn't like racing some of the europeans becuase they were essentially pro althletes who were ringers in the race. i guess that's why so many of those races includ mandatory alcohol consumption, sort of levels the playing field.

    Same in MTL back in the day....loads of racers trained as messers, it's a perfect fit.
    I liked the photoshopping of the EVil logo on the streets of Paris.

    There have been known to have the occasional street race down there, as well as the Docks traffic. That said I'm game...... damn need a machine.
    The Bridge is fine it is the gravel that is sketchy on either end of the bridge that's fun

    I used to stand up like that on a rolling road bike, without the seatgrab. I'm dyin' for my flip/flop fixie now. Operator, having gotten my own computer piece of paper years ago, I can sympathize. It's not one of your sexier occupations.

    As long as you hit the gravel straight on you're ok. Opps I'm forgetting about teeny tiny road tires.

    I could never wear a jersey that reads "skilled", as I'd have to be.

    I could maybe look at some flyer design or possibly help with creation of elements.... all bikes welcome?
    When is it needed?

    Public shame.

    Edit: How much of a complete ****ing dork am I? Here I am, sitting in my computer chair, Park TS-2 on the desk, iTunes blaring metal as I build a wheel and smack F5 every few minutes.

    It's just that it will affect the design if it's a fixie meet as opposed to open classes.

    Do that and there'll be one guy w/ the God Ratio whose pedal strokes line up perfectly to alleviate pedal strikes on any of the turns. Then there'll be me - broken collarbone in the first 10 feet.

    Edit: Ah, but I'm thinking equally-spaced cones/flags/etc. **** it, make people slalom angry dogs/winos. That'd be some good **** to watch.
