An Idea for Mothballs Crit Next Year...

Hey Echelon, see what you can do to make this happen, k??

You wanna see exciting bike racing? Check out the coverage of last week's USA Crits final race at night in Las Vegas. As per normal, Steephill has an excellent video. Crits at night ...it doesn't get much better than that!

Also, If you haven't done so already, I suggest you register at WCSN.com so you can watch their great video of lots of races, including start-to-finish coverage of the crits in Las Vegas. Not just the pros either, you can see coverage of the industry race featuring SB's own Dave Lettieri--who got a nice call-up btw--racing in a field with Mario Cipollini and Steve Bauer among others. You gotta hurry though, because they take down the videos after awhile (or maybe archive them somewhere that I've yet to find). In both the pro men and the industry races, watch for the crashes going into bell lap. You'll see Cody hit the deck after flying through the first corner, but fortunately he's ok and is now racing the elite track championships down in LA this week.

Sheesh Marco, will you stop talking about Mothballs so much?? Don't you know there's _other_ races on the calendar?

I'll see what I can do about it, but I don't know how happy Gina will be about it if you win...

TnA- OK, OK,... yeah I admit it... Mothballs is the top race on the calendar. We've got four months, so let's start trainig hard right now! 2008 is my year dammit. Finally gonna get the top spot on that podium, uhhh, that is, if they had a podium.

Chester- Re the video, if I get a chance to do some editing, I'll put it up. It's pretty shakey so I need to post-process it and also cut into smaller segments. Plus add music. It might take awhile. If/when I do it, I'll post it on youtube and embed it here. Also, I'll bring the cameras for descending OSM on Thursday so hopefully we'll have a good size group going fast downhill! And yeah, sure you were looking at Ivan's legs in that picture!

Steve & Ech Prez- Gina would love it. She knows what dorks male bike racers are, and how they get all gaga and stupid... or maybe that's just me.
