alex g, kathryn, steve & shanada rode on the track for first time at velodrome in blaine, minnesota among alex z, chet, tad & i. that is 50% of 8 c4ers who tried to ride for first time. 25% of c4ers are women! btw, mark could not join to ride with us due to his injured back but he gave his support and cheer his wife up.
bob williams did a excellent job to prepare all bikes together to be ready and wait for all people to show up. unfortunately there was heavy traffic from south in faribault to north in blaine so all people gathered together before bob started at 6:15 pm. thank god, we did ride to taste the rush in our blood vein enough before it rain. praise the lord for that it had put the rain on hold for us to enjoy riding in dry plus no crash. i don't need to mention the story since the pictures already spoke a thousand words. btw, you will see last two pictures of me by alex z.
oh, boy you should have seen his long lens 100-400mm zoom vs my short lens 85mm. he won to prove his true masculine. it doesn't matter if i try to draw my gun then he keep to draw his shotgun. remember i get new aero wheelset then he end up get his deeper aero zipp wheelset. i throw white towel to give up. lol... enjoy our photos.
our thanks to margaret m for being our excellent interpreter. she loves the cyclocross and mountain bike. she and her husband, jason also race. but you can ask her any question. she is asl user like us. alex and i both have been enjoyed her company when we across our path at the race, workshop, swap, etc... so you will love her too. please either welcome or invite whenever you happen to see her around.
our thanks to bob williams for allowing c4ers to ride at the velodrome again.
the last important thing, we want to thank xavier for his excellent job to work out with bob william in order to penciling c4ers into velodrome's open schedule.
thank for reading.
