I take it there are more server problems there as they have been fighting them here also.

I think my wife will be happy that there is not something else to suck my little bit of money away. I would like to see something like that, but then I am afraid I would get hooked on something new. The same reason why I haven't attended a cyclocross race.

After doing the fun Splash-N-Dash, I want to do some triathlons!!!

Remember these simple rules and you'll be fine:

1. Never, EVER! stop pedaling

2. Do not turn right

3. Do not underlap wheels

That's pretty much it!

If you haven't done it afore, the key is leg speed, not gear inches. I'd say the biggest thing you wanna run is prolly a 49x15. The faster you can spin up that gear, the faster you'll go.

Track racing has to be some of the safest racing I've ever done. Some of the hardest too!

Went for a bike fit today. $140 well spent, I hope. Go to Bike Masters in Omaha and ask for Dave to fit you. It took a couple of hours, but if it helps my knee pain, it was well worth it.

As a kid I used to take my BMX bike on the velodrome near me, and I would sometimes watch them race. The took some nasty falls back then, and when they did it would be a group of guys.
We actually built a BMX track that used the dirt backside of the velodrome as our start. They would always yell at us since we rode up the turn to get to the start. But that's what you get for building a velodrome in a public park in the middle of NYC.

Anyone know the closest velodrome to Omaha, NE? I think it would be something worth seeing in person. But, I don't need another hobby!!!
