Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I didn't know who he is. Then again, I don't care about stuff like this, and I DO have an alt bike. So there.

Isn't he already retired?

And didn't he only ride the Madison at the Worlds?

And this is his swan song? Racing *ahem* Team Puma. Is he racing you one at a time or all at once...?

Definitely! ...165, here's our own Kenny Williams edging out Nothstein at the Alpenrose Challenge in 2003. I think this is Kenny's last season on the National team but he said he was planning to continue to race regionally. His girlfriend Annette Hanson (also on the national team) is also incredible and is the women's USCF elite national champion in the individual pursuit,. I think you'll enjoy watching them race when you get here. Both are really nice folks too.

Ok, I know you have all been waiting. Marty Nothstein raced two exhibition races and won both:

1. An olympic sprint with him and homegrown sprinter Andrew Lacourte vs. 3 members of Team Puma: Carlos, Hugo, and Alfred. Marty won by about 4-6 seconds.

2. A 3 up match sprint with him, Plucky and Andrew Lacourte. Marty won by about 1.5 bike lengths.

**** was insane.

As far as I was concerned it all ended right when I won that sweet Bianchi Pista Concept in the raffle. I should get to pick it up soon. Thanks to Bucky and everyone involved with the promotion!

ceya,

thanks again for your input on the crashed Paramount. I got the insurance $ for it and nearly bought a new track bike last Friday - but didn't because I worked too late. Then I won a new track bike on Sat...doesn't get much better n' that.
