Thomas! You need to quit playing with that lame leg and get back on the race bikes instead of standing there in street clothes!

Thomas,
Good thing you're not a horse.
(Mabye that's just an American joke...)

Randy,
Barbara's 46.163 km/hr would be 26:00 at Fiesta Island.
Golly. How do I drop a minute a lap?

I'm curious how the speed translates between Fiesta Island and an indoor wooden velodrome. I feel the outdoor track in Northbrook is substantially faster than Fiesta Island as it feels like riding through soup. If training goes well through the spring I wouldn't mind renting some track time in L.A. for an American record attempt.

How steep is the mid-turn banking at Apeldoorn, 45? I did a short search and could not find that info.

Is it similar to the ADT Event Center (Home Depot Center) in Los Angeles where Sean rode a couple of years ago?

I'm home and just woke up from 13 straight hours of sleep and I'm suffering from a bad cold.

Wow. I just reviewed all the results and posts and it seems that someone pushed a hyperspace button and we were launched into the future. There were so many records broken that it is hard to digest it all.

What a absolute pleasure it was to meet so many talented, interesting and friendly people. A heartfelt thanks to Hans and Ellen van Vugt who put this event and hosted me for the weekend.

There were so many great, exciting and fun moments that I hardly even felt disappointment over the difficulty I had in the hour where I had hoped to break 30 mph. On attempt 1 I had chosen too big of a gear. Attempt 2, I just did not have it.

I think it is time to leave the hour to those with the natural talent for it. It seems that the unfaired records have matured to the point where specialization of athletes and bikes has begun.

There was one record that was picked up at the end of the competition that was not immediately noticed. Paul Collender, my fellow Nocom racer beat my 200M record before I did my 67km/hr run.

Thanks again to all the timers, volunteers, Cheerleaders and the NVHPV
for sponsoring this great event.

Sean

This has been a very exciting read. Thanks to the organizers and reporters and congratulations to all the competitors. The records keep falling.

And thanks to the video clip, I now know how van Vugt sounds.

Larry,

It's pretty similar banking to ADT, even the wood appears to the same, but fewer creaks at Appeldorn. I think the banking is taller which helps with the sprinting.

"You know what: We challenge you. The first man or woman to surpass Gert Jan's WRRA unfaired record on his own shopping bike (and that can also be an M5 Carbon High Racer..) wins a set of Gold plated M5 Bram Brakes with a value of 999,- Euros. We don't think we have to wrap them up already.."
Any certified shopping bikes at Appledorn?

An Amazing weekend.

One of my favourite pictures of the weekend is this one. We see here the UCI 200 m worldrecordholder and the current WRRA 200 m recordholder.

Amazing! - seems like a great guy to pose for a picture during his warmup with Sean - I hope he asked Sean about his shirt - with the picture of the Varna on it! Sean could have asked him, "Hey Theo, you want to go fast, really fast?!!" Je wilt snel gaan, heel snel?

- In case anyone was wondering what Theo Bos was doing there...this from a Google translation of his website:

Theo - Monday in Amsterdam has made a successful debut as a six-day Renner (rider?). He won on the opening day with his partner Peter Schep the trial flock. Earlier in the evening the new duo finished fourth in the Points Race. The victory that was part Traksel Bobbie and Tim Veldt. Theo and Peter Schep together all at once convinced as time riders. They were renowned six-day specialists like Robert Bartko / Roger Kluge (GER) and Bruno Risi / Franco Marvulli (Swi) for. The promising Dutch couple riding together again in the Six Days of Rotterdam. Theo has decided this winter some of these events on the track length in his program to take with a view to possible participation in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

PS: Theo is the former UCI record holder, his 2006 record having been beaten twice by the same rider, Sireau, earlier this year.

Storebought bike, not a special or custom built.

Opus

My gas is up to $.99 a burrito, $5.99 for premium and I'm only getting 20 miles to the regular burrito.

Greetings Gert-Jan





I look like his coach! I would have put my arm around him like we were good buddies but the Boss was on his rollers and I was worried that I was going to be the guy who knocked him off causing a career ending injury. Once you get older I guess you start to worry about little stuff like that. The only thing that separates me and Theo is 18 years and 1 second.

It was great to meet you Gert-Jan. I'm looking forward to seeing you get the hour record back.

Sorry Mike, We didn't talk about streamliners. He wanted to know what my fastest 200 time was and feeling rather humbled I told him to watch and see. I'd be going under 11 seconds. I should have given him my Battle Mountain time.

Sean

Based on all of the pictures I don't think anyone enjoyed themselves more than Ellen did. Hopefully I can earn (buy) a spot next year but, if not, I think it would be quite an experience just to spectate.

So, did he comment on what he thought about the bent racing? I wonder if he would consider taking a shot at racing on one? Maybe later on in his DF career?

He wanted to give it a try at the track but at the time he had time the track was busy, properly next time.
