    Some pretty good ones, I'm new at the action stuff so *wiggles hand* some good, some sucked, loads of smiles though, and of course I have some of "The Mitch That Could". I'll be cropping and adjusting for a few days. Some nice shots of some of the lads from here. Next races I'm ready ....gonna practice speed shots with commuters. Do we need a card for Halloweens' AlleyCat? Who's organizing that race?

    Definitely practice your panning shots.. does your camera have a shutter-priority mode (you set the shutter speed, and it figures out the rest)? If so, pick a shutter speed like maybe 1/30 or 1/50 and then just practice panning while hitting the shutter release. If you do it right the rider will be nice and crisp, but the background will be blurred. Check out my autocross pics: http://www.flickr.com/photos/wes/sets/99683/. Note: the shutter speeds I mentioned are approx what I was using for cars whipping past me, so you might want to go even slower for cyclists.

    So, who's on campus these days? Rob / Cam?

    So far with 2 cities still to report our winner sits at 20th worldwide. The Hamburg guys had a 30 min and change time...5 minutes faster than us. They must have done the local car racing track with no lights or stop signs....that time is CRAZY fast.
    Halloween Race has not "officially" been announced yet but it will be a Jetfuel race. Word on the street has Redbull as main sposor. There will be qualifying alleycat races in other cities with Redbull flying in the winners for Halloween. Knowing Johnny's race style it will be long and gruelling, with many checkpoints. A LeMans start is likely.

    Nice pics TJ.

    Vuelta A Espana is coming up this weekend. Seems like OLN is only doing 2 hours worth of coverage from 5-7pm on sunday. Anybody got cable TV we can watch it on and a thirst for beer?

    I kinda regret not coming out to the alleycat but my ex showed up at my place at like 4:30pm on saturday and in the ensuing 'tying of loose ends' I missed the start and decided to just feel sorry for myself instead. Still, track racing on sunday and I wanna bring out the cyclops. I'm pretty sure I saw a bunch of the racers heading west on bloor afterwards though when I was out to grab a falafel. I was in no condition to race anyways as I still had a brutal hangover and an annoying cold.

    Oh also lets not forget to spend a moment in rememberance of all the people who were hurt and killed on September 11th, 2001 and also all of the people who have been hurt and killed because of heavy-handed reprisal and retribution since then.



    edit: I saw that CCCP guy go past cyclepath earlier on saturday. That jersey doesn't look as good in person as I had hoped. I like the pic TJ took where his face is almost as red as the shirt!

    Petey does get pretty red sometimes.. That's a few minutes after the finish...he's still flushed.
    As well pre-race lactose acid inhibitors contribute to redness.....

    If offhoff fails, the 4th saturday of every month has a combo 2/3 session in the morning already in the schedule:

    http://www.forestcityvelodrome.ca/comeriderace.html

    I'll be there.

    Somnambulant brings up the point that I got from Forest City they ask us to come on the 4th if we would like to do any combo classes, if anyone has a ride out for me I'll be there with bells.

    Sorry it took so long for me to get that info out, work has suddenly decided to destroy any sense of free time I might have had.
