    not taking the blame from the gate handlers, they should have removed the gate since they saw they were approaching at high speed, it seems it was just a major cluster**** by them all
    Some of you will remember watching me and my Team ride 2 full laps at T-Town Masters Nats- a full 666m! Through 7 ****** shots and everyone screaming at us that we had false started..

    TT helmets are hard to hear in- and it's very easy to not know it was a false start.. This was all on the gate handlers..

    TOTALLY.
    Add to that the fact of being all hopped up on competition and ready to thrash a short, all-out effort - you're channeling all of your senses into stomping on your pedals. You're not listening for changes in your environment.

    It looks like the 2nd rider was a fair bit shorter too. Gate should have been moved, but the first rider probably could have gone up a lot sooner. Scary crash.

    From what i read elsewhere the rider in question was Irene Aravena and she has a fractured patella which she has already had surgery on which was a success. Whether success means being able to ride again in the future i dont know

    I'm quite certain he's a great coach (strength and cycling). Because I hear him quoted (either directly or indirectly) almost every day from @Quinn8it . Just a little mock complaining.

    He's a coach, but also a multi time national masters champ in the kilo -- with times that would have him placing well in elite events too --- He's an outspoken , opinionated guy, but its tough to argue with results

    He's sorta like a mix of Quinn's maniacal obsession with being strong as **** and training hard enough to kill most hooved creatures, Carleton's ever-present attention to detail, and Walt Kowalski's gnarly, yet strangely loveable, demeanor.
    He's a bit of a legend amongst internet track dweebs (most of our current company; yours truly very much included). Steve is extremely knowledgeable and can be quite helpful and generous, though he's not known for tolerating fools, wimps, or slackers (at all. Like, at all). I think of him as the hard-nosed adoptive-father character from many a western novel, who's primary literary responsibility is showing the young greenhorn the path to manliness and honor. "I am Bear Claw Chris Lapp; bloodkin to the grizzly that bit Jim Bridger's ass! You are molesting my hunt!"

    No ho mo.

    Not sure if posted elsewhere in the forums yet, but UCI is discussing revising the weight limit regulations for races:

    I used to be proud of jumping on to a 60cm box.

    ...not anymore

    Plyo box jumps are an interesting and insightful exercise. I think they are as mentally as they are a physically intense activity. As you progress through your sets, you get to see how the combination of mental focus and warm muscles can make efforts progressively better.
