The throw:

Czech this out.

I'm in the red shorts with black jersey. This throw got me 6th rather than 7th. (woohoo)

Wow, looks like he beat you in both. Sprinting inside the yellow line, man that sucks.

...but last place among the bunch on the 'Best Dressed" list.

(Now ducking in fear of the wrath to come from the thighs (and fingers) of Cypress!

Is this a caption contest?

The guy in green is wishing he had longer arms.

No, Echelon-7. I had the Enterprise drop me off for a race before heading out to defeat the Clingons around Uranus.

I had reached FDM at the 200m mark where I had to bridge 10-15 meters up to the already sprinting bunch in the picture.

Team mate won the RMCCC regionals crit this weekend, and I'm sorry to say his throw owns your throw. He's on the right, and won because of his throw by about 3 inches.

I'm not sure if the "no socks" or "knee highs" are worse.

Tall socks and no socks are well behind the saddle, but Cypress and his adversary both seem to still be sitting on their seats. Which is the proper throw technique?

i'd go with the guys fighting for the win having better technique than the guys fighting for 6th and 7th.

nice picture zecanon, that was a great race, such a fun course.

That sprint was crazy though, it was being fought out before we even cleared the first corner. My team got wrecked though, you can just see jared and todd 5th and 6th in that picture.

I would have to relegate the socks on length alone, then relegate him next week for the argyle.

Bike throws are not cool unless your ass is behind your saddle. I had a friend thow his bike so hard in practice one time that he lost his grip on the bars and fell off his bike backwards.

Fun course, but not so much for me I climb, so I was just helping out our sprinter all day. Managed to break my shoe too and got stuck behind too many idiots *cough* CU *cough* falling all over the place in the B's. Soooo wanted to race A's this weekend after winning last weekend but couldn't move up cause it was regionals. Oh well.

BTW, more photos on the CSU cycling website, check 'em out. ramscycling.com - media section.

Phil is an animal, as is Kiel. I think both have a pretty good chance of winning Nats.

I'd take a look at the technique of one of the top collegiate sprinters in the country over Cypress (no offense your Quadliness).

+1, the saddle in the sternum is good. I'm often too tired to get there in the real-world sprints though.

I'm always worried about getting my ass back on my saddle.
