    I think it's worse that you were watching MTV. At least they were out riding.

    Hopefully more people will come out and pay racer fees and race and help preserve a decent sport.

    Probably a little off topic-I read somewhere that from the turn of the last century up untill around WW2 that track bicycle racing was just as popular as baseball and every major city had a velodrome. Wouldn't it be nice if that could happen again.

    except nascar racers don't have to work to go fast. oooooh, you can point your toe downward on the gas pedal. now THAT **** deserves some respect...

    sure, there's maneuvering, but track racing and nascar are about equal in that respect.

    I call BS on this. I'm a car guy, I don't care for NASCAR... Formula One is more my style.

    Strap yourself into a car, and run 200mph... 293 feet per second. 1 football field per second. Do this on a track like daytona that is about 45 feet wide in each turn. Banked at 31 degrees, I've tried walking up it, gave up.

    Now, 200 mph... throw a car into a turn... where your going to fight 3 g's of force on your arms. Go 2 or 3 cars wide with inches in between them. Follow the same line each lap varying the entry point +/- 6 inches, hit the apex by the same margin and get back out... at 200 miles an hour. I can't hit an apex by 3 feet in a car... at 60!

    Do it in 130 degree heat... for 5 hours. Drivers come out of the car dehydrated having sweated off ten pounds.

    Care to have your ego stroked? A lot of formula one, Nascar, and Super Moto drivers and riders train on bicycles in order to think quick with a high heart rate.

    You can think that all it takes is putting a right foot down, but I'd have to agree to disagree.

    too bad their fast-food-addicted, sugar-swilling, beer-guzzling, crap-watching, couch-sitting, morbidly obese fans can't get a piece of that action.

    I just appreciate both the spandex wearing leg shaving races where "Fast" is 35, and the machines involved... as well as the race cars.

    Heck, anything that gets my adrenaline pumping does the trick.

    the producers at MTV are just like me & you. As a matter of fact, I know for sure that at least 1 bikeforums member has worked there recently, and I'd almost be willing to put money on the fact that there are probably a few that work for viacom right now. (occasionally, I freelance for them). If ONE kid watching MTV wants to go race or spectate out at the velodrome because he saw this show, I think that's ******** awesome.

    it would be nice. but would it be worth enduring the amount of *****ing about its growing popularity from people who would eventually abandon the sport once it became mainstream? i'm sure it would be.
