    I got some time to play with some of my pictures from the races at the Velodrome on Friday night.

    Thanks Hans...

    The do a lot of what is called Madison Racing at this velodrome, it is like a relay race where they pass off being in the race between the to riders every few laps. It makes for some pretty interesting viewing as they hand off like in this picture.

    Very nice images DBird, love to see some cycling from the USA. I wonder if cycling is populair in the States as I don't hear a lot about it over here aside the succes of Lance in the TdF that is.

    This is my pic, taken recently. I train about 250-400km a week on that Pinarello bike.
    Have to take a break now because I just had a little accident so no cyling the next two weeks I'm afraid... :frown:

    Thanks for your kind words Henk, as for how popular cycling is here in the states I can't say because I haven't cycled in years. I know I see a lot of people here doing it with mountain biking being very popular. (There are 5 guys from my small church that mountain bike all the time)
    Sorry to hear about the accident, get well quickly.

    Dave
