Actually, the house will be way too big for just the two of us, so I expect to see officials and racers staying with us frequently. Mrs D is already working on a fee schedule.

Personally, Iím hoping for a national team thatís willing to leave some silks behind. I think Canadians & Dutch ride on Dugast. They would be nice.

I'm glad you clarified that about the tires. Before finishing that paragraph I thought you were using "silks" as slang for chamois.

Chamois or chemise? I canít figure out if a silk would be a viable material for a chamois or not.

Hope it is successful.
The rescue attempt was successful thanks to hard work by a group of concerned people. A contract has been signed and the rebirth of the velodrome is in progress.
