I'm there! Can't wait!
Actually- I'm not there, I'm still in Chicago.
And I can wait. I really have no choice.

But I plan on going. Still a couple of seats available in the marcusmobile too (assuming it will start), with bike rack space to match.
I'd like to be on the road around 4pm... Call me at the shop (312.587.0878) by 1pm if anyone's interested in a ride up and/or back.

Let's see- looks like we'll be Scratchin' (cool), Miss -n- outin' (not my kind of cool) and 10 mile (50 laps?) Points Racin' (way cool).

Can anybody give me a reference to what these types of races mean? What's a "miss out" or a "Madison" or a "Danish"? The velodrome near me (Northbrook, IL) is opening again after being closed for reconstruction, and my memory is foggy on what these terms mean.
