Top stuff. Great pic of big Dean Taylor barging into Adrian Hansen.

I took a mate from work - first time he's seen the track cycling - and he loved it.

I can just feel the speed in that last photo. Very nice.

+1. He rode like a dill all night. Got stitched up in the derby big time.

Yep. First race of the night on about lap 2. About six riders came off in a motorpaced race. There wasn't enough pace on, riders were 3 or 4 wide and someone must have fallen over the wheel in front.

Must be about $1000 of useless carbon there. :D Should post it on the road forum. alanbikehouston will have something to spout off about.

I have put on the road forum :p

What did it hit for that to happen?

classic1 02-04-07 10:27 PM

Nothing. They just all fell over. Nobody got hurt or hit the inside barricades or the ballestrade that I could see.

I've smashed normal aluminium rims at least as bad as that, although I did hit the deck pretty hard.
