    That's debatable. I'd say the saving grace to GSVA is the infrastructure (lights, bathrooms, and sam's derny). The track itself is about as bad as it gets. I'd say Kissena is much faster.

    Speaking of lace up shoes, has anyone experimented with different lacing styles? I used to just criss-cross like standard shoes, then switched to criss-cross with a lock lace, but now I'm tempted to...

    The D101 has been discontinued, I think. I stocked up when I saw them on closeout. I had seen something about an X101 coming out as an improved version, but I don't know what the deal is with that.

    What would a guy like me need to race at an event like this? I'm guessing they won't be as lenient as FCV about not having an international license. Would I be able to race as a cat 2?

    Oh happy day! I might have just spent the week justifying to myself that it was good that I wasn't heading up to race, and I really should save that travel money. I'll book the hotel tonight.

    Loaner bikes are available, first come first served. Bring your own pedals. They're usually geared pretty low, so I'm guessing you could get past junior roll-out with them.
