Cyclisme time slot
practice on the
being canceled due to rain,
we finally got to have a track practice.
Beautiful and breezy,
temperature in the mid
seventies made for a
perfect day out at the track.
A big contingent of men and juniors
made for three big groupings of ability.
Thanks to three great coaches
everyone received some quality instruction.
Steve Garcia of OBRA,
and my old friend,
added great color and sound
as he kicked off the practice by
blowing his whistle and making
sure we were all safe and paying
attention to the rules of the track.
Then a guy who started out as a bike messenger riding for a team called Cyclisme based out of a shop called Bike Central, but today is considered one of the best racers on the best track team in Oregon, Tony Kic gave us our briefing on velodrome pacelines.
