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)

2008 Keirin GP photos, Hiratsuka, Japan

This is a repost from the track forum, but that place appears to be dead.

This was a sweet event and if you ever have the chance to watch (and gamble a bit), you should do it.

I was getting harassed for having a camera and was shooting from an odd spot through fence so my AF wouldn't work, but I got a couple shots.

#8 took third in the olympics, but #7 took the $100,000. Not a bad haul for 4 minutes of work.

happy cadence.

awesome job. looks like a lot of fun to see.
and i like the fact that the pictures are small enough to
keep people from complaining about anything besides the
size of the pictures.

Did you see the guy's blog, he either cares too much about protecting his copyright or just loves to see his name in print.
