Cool pics from the race @ Landahl

The insane Le-Mans start (all photos: Rob Stitt/HeartlandRace.com)

How many Nebraskans do you count in this shot -- getting on the bike after the starting run.

MW before the storm of flat tires...

Yours truly in the same spot -- this was on lap two (of eight).

Whoa, Syd is using the force. Racing with her eyes closed. That's hardcore forceage.

MG said...

that new badger she's riding must have truly telepathic handling...
;-}

that shot of me (and you separately) is on the start climb, right? if so, that might be on my 2nd lap ,which would have been after all 4 flats, including the car! shit. darn. f**k.

mw said...

i think there were more people around me on the 1st lap.

MG said...

wow... so you still looked that good (composed) after four flats?! i would have likely looked much more frustrated... but then sweet singletrack soothes the pain pretty well - and pretty quickly too.

i was very impressed by the ride you put in despite your difficulties. you have amazing discipline.

happy friday!
