Lots of bike parts. I could use a 9-speed cassette so I'm hoping they sell lots of used items.

I'll be there, and I'll be RACING!! Now's your chance to get a great deal on some really fantastic goodies! It's also your chance to CHECK OUT THE TRACK!! Watch the thrilling bike races. check out skinsuits of appropriate genders!! check out the GORGEOUS, sleek, beautiful track bikes. Come cheer for me as I get my butt pasted all over the velodrome by the Category IV newbies!! It's going to be a glorious day!!

Hi,

Well, it seemed pretty good last year, but since it's my club that puts it on, I may be a bit biased. I'll be doing something during the day and if I can get my act together I'll have some stuff for sale at our club's booth. Of course, all of my stuff is high quality and well-maintained.

Hi VP,

I am a pure roadie when it comes to racing (oh yeah, and pure chicken). I do like to train at the velodrome but I have not had a strong desire to race there.

Hope you have a good day racing there.

just bumping this up to the top of the list, since someone was asking if there was a thread on this topic.
