Rod Miller (XTNOMAD) is going to be out 3/24 to take pictures. He's the pro photog and his site is at: http://sportshots.smugmug.com/

Definitely support your track photographers as they put in a lot of time and effort. I doubt any are getting rich on the pictures when you factor in all the equipment and time needed.

Thanks, all you instructors were very helpful!

I can't wait to see the video uploaded. It was at the end of the day and I wanted to take it easy but it will still be helpful. I can already see from the pics how much I need to work on my seat.

The end of a very long week at work. And everyone has asked for the keyhole while it is a mud pit to stand in or even get to on foot to shoot. I would never trek in the mud and cross the track!! On 3-24 I hope everything will be dry and I will be there.

Excuse me for saying this but there seem to be a lot of fast rider for this noob's day. Take a look at these pics and videos. Certainly don't look slow to me. I got CHEATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wasn't allowed to ride this day because I was under 2:18 but these rider looks like they could turn 1:50's, with knees, and pipes dragging.


Buddhaman, next time you better have the camera mount on your bike so you could follow my slow around the track. Many days of track event and couldn't get my knee down like you.:notworthy

I only can teach beginners.
I don't think I have skill for intermediates and experts.
What's gonna be like if students pass the instructor???

Pipes drag very easy on some bikes.

The pics of me were taken in the last few sessions. Speed?? We attribute that to the excellent instruction we got out there from the control riders.

As Taeyoung said, some were eximport riders (there were about six or seven of them? - mainly the ones with the trackbikes and numbers) and the ones with the shirts on are instructors.

As for myself, my pipes were dragging and I wasn't even going that fast, trust me . It happens on a sporttouring bike. Don't let the pics fool you. :nono:
