    Why always so negative?

    wpstoll:I'll tell you in person next time I see you - too controversial to post here. Let's just say for now that the owner is not happy.

    If you can't talk about it on the forum then don't post it in the first place.

    i went down & helped throw some new paint the track yesterday... and man is it gonna look good when it's done! the folks that came down got it painted from turn 2 all the way around to the entry gate! considering how few came to volunteer it was a pretty big achievement! & i believe there are more folks down there again today finishing it up... so, if you're free & wanna give back to a place that gives so much to the community, head on down & lend a hand.

    also... a pretty rad story on Sarah Hammer, who some of you might remember her racing (or rather owning the hell outta everyone) at TNR for a couple of weeks earlier this season. she's in London now for the Olympics! in a few days we can watch her kick the crap outta the rest of the world on national TV! GO HAMMER!!!

    i wasn't sure where to post this... so many other threads it could fit in, but i think it's most appropriate here!
    The Chemical Brothers - 'Theme For Velodrome' A pinging dance track for the Olympics

    'Here’s a thing about the Olympics. It’s basically moved artists that usually write about songs about love or parties to switch their artistic focus to things like jumping and defeating other countries. Take this from The Chemical Brothers, which is basically a pinging dance track about men chasing each other on tiny bikes wearing super-tight clothes.'
    http://www.nme.com/reviews/the-chemical-brothers/13472


    not that i'm a big chemical brothers fan, but this totally reminds me of Autobahn by Kraftwerk... and Kraftwerk is awesome! velodromes too...

    I'm hoping to do the same although it's much harder for me to take a friday night off. I had to delay the track classes until April 29th due to a trip but I'll still have some time to do some racing after the classes are over I hope. I may try to go right into the 2nd round classes and race when I can.

    I actually go out of town the next morning after opening night so I'll be there for sure but I'll be missing the week after most likely.

    My two cents on TNR so far this year, and this goes for any racing event any night / day of the week.

    Smoking is illegal in Balboa Park. If you feel the urge to smoke while at the velodrome; do other spectators and especially the racers a favor and walk behind the bathrooms to do your smoking. It has been bad since opening day and last night it boiled over to a near confrontation in the stands during and after the races.

    As a rider of the velodrome myself I can tell you no racer wants to come sprinting around turn 4 huffing and puffing for air only to ride into a flume of cigarette and pot smoke. These are athletes, some of them are actual Olympians.

    Leave the stands and go behind the bathrooms if you must smoke. If you can't do this - don't come to the velodrome.

      This is a free event. They don't need or want you if you aren't going to respect the riders on the track.

    I've heard SDVA is looking at taking action if it continues. So please spread the word, remind your friends, and if someone is smoking ask them to take it elsewhere. Don't let a few bad apples ruin TNR.

    And a big thanks to everyone respecting the smoking issue. I and everyone else appreciate your efforts to leave the stands to do your business.

    well last night my friend gave me a ride in his pickup over to mission hills bikes. Then we rode to the ttrack. I got to go down university on it. And then back up it this morning on my way to the ferry to go to work.
    The short answer. It does a lot better than you might think. But I won't be attacking Texas on it any time soon

    I was there last week from about 7 to 730. Missed all the crashes. Probably be back tomorrow, was pretty fun to watch. On a side note, as a huge beer supporter, its lame I watched every bottle cap get thrown on the ground and two bottles thrown in the bushes while there. Definitely a small punk rock gone wrong group there.

    Yes, Jackie Dunn succumbed to her injuries from the crash last night and has passed away. There are few words but as many others have said; we are a strong and close knit community. We've come together to support one another in times of tragedy and we will continue to do so. There will be a memorial ride this Saturday from Coronado. I'll post more when I get home.

    We live and ride to remember those whose passions and spirt we share. Pedal on.
