Thanks!

I guess my name is actually "Up Up Up". That's what they were yelling at me anyway.

A bunch of us must have the same name!

We should probably make this happen.

I dunno, but I think in this case I may prefer to be Baby Puke vs Queerpunk....

I ran into another board member at Ttown this weekend and asked if he knew Queerpunk. I know he's been there while I was officiating during the UCI races, but I've never met him in person... that is unless I didn't realize it was him.

I stop racing on the track (or riding completely for a while) and you guys give up on my thread.

Shame. I don't see any race reports in the track area at all, at least on the first page. These were my favorites to read, and great places to learn stuff.

Perhaps everyone is just too busy doing actual racing? It has been pretty quiet on here of late. For myself, I've been doing TT's and TS's almost exclusively for a few years now, and those do not make riveting reads, generally.

Wow, the concrete has weathered..interestingly at Rock Hill. Is it just the photo?

When I was there when it opened and for a year or two after it looked super uniform.

Is it just visual or is it actually bumpy like it looks?

Not as bad as it looks, but the track is definitely not as smooth as it used to be. Coming out of t1/2 I feel a lot more bounce/shudder than I did a few years ago.

That's a shame. I figured it would stay smoother longer than that. It was beautiful when it opened.
