Awsome pics guys. Even Botto's mock-ups.

They make me realize that I'm not the only fool out there in terrible pain.

I haven't had anyone photo me yet. But, I've only raced twice so in due time.

Just after winning a prime, later dropped off the back, only good for one sprint per race in my old age.

On the lead lap, i.e. not pulled.

Is 600DA a real guy? Or is he just some character that people talk about but no one has actually seen him live? (kind of like that bad dude from the Harry Potter series. Voldermort or whatever his name is)

I'm sure I'll regret this but...This is a pic from Stage 2 at Ft Davis last year. I flatted on mile 1 and had to wait 3 minutes for a new front wheel. The stage is 16 miles, the first 15.5 miles are ave gradient of 6.5% the last .5 mile is at 17%. I chased the group and caught the tail-enders at the bottom of the first climb, and started to pic guys off. I finished 20th out 50 on this stage. This pic is half way up the 17% section.
