Very cool! Great article. I've ridden with Jack Simes in The Derby and a few other local rides around T-Town some time back. He's the real deal. I'm honored just to have known him a just little, and to have struggled to hang on his wheel several times. I can't think of anyone who rides harder, and has contributed more to this great sport of track racing better than he has.
And his son Jackie Simes IV has been paying his dues and getting real respect riding the professional six days in Europe the past few years.
Every one of us who rides a track owes something to guys like Simes, Jack Disney, Allen Bell and others.
Armstrong never got caught cheating.
That probably makes him as good a cheater as a cyclist.
