Me on the pointy end of the stick. I'll be honest it was a stupid move with 6 to go and I was cooked and fell off the back with 1 to go.

But its cool being on the pointy end of the stick

Decided to finally support the photographer too, unfortunately I bought the large photo and am too lazy to resize it.

I really did buy it.

Nice photo. I can't figure out how to post mine like you did - is that because you bought it?

Note the "PROOF" watermark. That's usually no extra charge.

was paramount just a normal old Dominguez race? Even so I kind of regret not doing it looking at this pic...

It feels great to be able to post in here again.

Leading the chase group -- we got within 100m of the break at the finish The pack hasn't come into view yet


Here we are going into the last lap, I had just cracked and was losing my teammate's wheel (managed to maintain position to recover a bit before the sprint). #330:

The Driveway! Awesome courses, awesome organization. (a teammate made that movie trailer) If all other racing vanished, I would be happy as just a Driveway racer.

This is a Driveway video with the camera on the USA crit champ's bike as he plays leadout spot 2.
