    I think that last reason is a big part of it.

    But yeah, I assumed that riders on WT teams basically said, "I need an Hour Record bike" and sponsors, knowing that there will be pictures all over...

    The repairs went really well. We were hoping they'd be completed a little bit earlier, but what can you do?

    There will be some maintenance to do, as always - some board replacements, and painting,...

    Opening Night at the NSC Velodrome last night was a huge deal after we fought to keep the velodrome up and running.

    My best race of the evening came in our 60-lap scratch race. It was totally...

    To your point about drafting - sometimes in keirins, people go uptrack a little bit to ensure that they have a good line forward. It's called "keeping your front wheel clean." Since I'm not much of a...

    The question is - when? If it's too early, it's just a pointless attack. It has to be late enough that nobody is going to chase. In cat 3 races I used to attack all the time when the race got down to...

    oh, heh, i didn't even see that.
    The confidence intervals overlap, though, so you can probably expect the actual difference to be quite a bit less than that.

    Yup.
    I mean, if you consider your arms wide as outside of the rest of your body's frontal footprint, and your arms narrow as being within the frontal area of your hips and torso, you're removing a...

    This is a pretty good primer but my experience is that miss and outs tend to be very different at different velodromes or racing scenes. You race locally long enough and the M&O goes one way, and...

    Yeah. But I would expect Cervelo to be pretty involved in testing and engineering, and I guess I wouldn't put it past this partnership for Cervelo to somehow absorb/incorporate the Katsanis work....

    yeah, i think it wasn't so much that the cost was an impediment, it's that i didn't feel like going to the thrift store to pick one up.

    shrug.

    the 3-4 chains thing sounds pretty good, too.

    I picked up some wax one time. Then I read the directions and realized that I needed a dedicated slow cooker for my wax, and that it needed to be reapplied every 1000kms or something like that. So I...

    loving bikes is not a prerequisite of bike racing.

    Yup.

    Also, put on a big gear, tuck in behind somebody with a great draft. Anticipate any jumps - accelerate before them if necessary. Stay sheltered and try to ride that shelter into a good finish.

    I've had rear-wheel skipping when I've had bad form. Basically, you jam your leg and pedal downward, and you keep driving down even after it hits 6 o'clock, so that lifts your body up, and then you...
