Unfortunately it was involved in a crash at Track nationals, and is receiving treatment for the injuries right now.

My track bike: this is what I raced on at Northbrook and Kenosha velodromes this season.


My street bike: this is what I brought to SF for a few weeks over the summer, and actually raced on at Hellyer, minus the top tube pad, the spokecards, and the pedals.

If you're talking about the 2006 season, then that was not me. 2007 was my first season at the track, and while I started Cat5 I'm am definitely not a junior!

Hey again cave dweller. I saw you there on Last Thursday night. I was warming down for a few laps after one of the races, by the time I was finished I did not get to see you.

I did spot the bike though, being carried on your shoulder.

Were you doing a roller session?

I might come and check out a wednesday night soon (or go to dunc gray instead??)

Yeh, training session but i was using the mag trainer (with no resistance) instead of the rollers. I still feel way too sketchy on the rollers, not sure why because i can hold a track stand fairly well. But i might have to learn because i bent the mag trainer axle clamps, training a bit too hard

Not sure if im going to race, im mostly doing it for fitness training for DH riding. I guess i'll see how fast i can get first.
