ok sprinters, check out how low he is, ive been hearing for the starts, pulling up for the first bit, but as soon as your going fast enough for it to matter you have to be getting low etc. (while still standing)

heaps good apart from the sqirmish feeling it leaves you with. Not sure quite what Chris Hoy's tactic was sitting so far off Ross Edgar's wheel. He was waiting for another wheel to come by but why put so mch distance between you and the next guy?

so you can do a run onto him, its easier to reach a top speed when your on a wheel, even that far off, where as the guy on his right, would be heading into the wind.

Fair enough, I guess the difference between me and Chris Hoy is about 1300w and 30kph. I saw him at Manchester World Classics a few years ago and he was a marvel to watch, they all were.
If I sat that far off in a Kieran, I'd be out of the race. Especially if it was Ross Edgar in front of me. Whoops, day dreams over.

That wheel isn't the current offering from Araya, there current wheel is black and is a honeycomb core. The Lightweight disc wheel is that sort of construction http://www.lightweight.info/index.php?id=29&L=1 . The Sugino T-spoke was another strange one, it has 256 kevlar spokes under a mylar cover.

Aw that's the one! very nice paint job, it's abit like the people that fix up cars though, once the job is done it's abit boring and they want to sell it. Though they may have realised the BT light front end effect also...

More poor form by Hoy too IMHO. Raising his arms in victory after he went past the crash is not polite.

Hoy just won the Kieran at a world cup, at his home town, so sorta understandable that he celebrated like that. The crash was just one of many others that hes ben near, its not like the big once off that it is for us.

I think you just have slide burn Mike, was there a splinter involved?

Look above, the splinter in the picture was embedded in my lycra. Luckily I wasn't impaled :)

I think Shaun Colley and Simonelli's are the best looking BT's I've seen. I would definitely own one like Shauns.

Hoy had just gone around everyone of the guys that crashed, while they were upright and going as hard as they could. He was streets ahead of them, and would have won regardless of whether there had been a crash behind him or not. He has the complete right to celebrate that win.
