    I wonder if having the CMWC here again would bring out the Figure 8.. or vice-versa I wonder if bringing out the Figure 8 could bring the CMWC back here.
    Doubtful. CMWC has nothing to do with HPR. There is a bidding process for CMWC host. It is decided at Cmwc Open Forum where the next one will be. Seeing as this year is Australia...and you must be there to bid...it is unlikely to come back to Toronto any time soon. Add to that a successful CMWC organization requires at least 10 dedicated individuals to do the required work ie: permits..sponsors..route and course close..police etc...it is a real undertaking. when we did it in 96' we had a huge group of messers that put in a ton of work to make it happen. I frankly don't see the current messer community making it happen.

    Yeah, that was more along the lines of what I was thinking. I'm just trying to scheme up a way into getting the Figure8 out again.

    That's right.. and I read about it on the Surly blog if memory serves me, which makes sense in combination with the boozing and silly races.

    Can't remember the last roadie-type banzai run I did. It would be awesome to be able to run full out without cars.
    TNT how long is that J? Solo 14hrs? Ouch man, hats off.

    it's a double imperial century, 200 miles so about 322kms. TBN puts it on once a year. route runs pretty much out and back to niagara falls.

    if anyone's interesed in doing it, it's running june 25th this year.

    EDIT: from the TBN site: "As of June 15, 20 cyclists are already registered for this year's ride, including one who will be riding a fixed gear"

    so who is it? who here's doing the hairshirt?

    even though you're mixing languages, i still think "velo" is the most intuitive.

    Assembler isn't dead.. it just isn't used much in daily life. Reminds me of the old demo scene.. those guys were f'ing crazy coders. </nerd>

    I love on Futurama that the beer Bender drinks is called "Olde Fortran".

    Early 20th century peek at the infamous 6 day race...one of the biggest spectator sports of it's day.
    Today the backdrop for the romance would be NASCAR.

    keith, this is a long shot but do you remember the star publishing (TJ might have a flashback) a story about local messengers back in the day? ...it must have been 96 when toronto hosted. the story focused on joe diaz and another dude.. long curly dirty-blonde.. i think the photo shoot was on temperance. good article.

    I still have a copy of that article in my "Archives"..otherwise known as the skads of manilla envelopes in a box in the basement. The other guy in the article is Tommy "Toast"...a few of you guys met him on the Ronnies patio that day we had pints.

    I still remember ripping through the warehouse and almost wiping out on the left hander into the alley whilest test running the course with my boys from MTL. Damn that was a fun event... I may be able to get reprints of said pictures/articles.

    Is everyone riding fixed or can you go with gears?

    On another note, who's Fuji Track Pro is that on CL? Damned good deal if it is the whole bike. Anyone here ride one of these on the street?

    That is one confusing ad. Does it come with all those components or is it just the frame?
