This Saturday the 24th my man Damage McGehee will try to beat the UMCA 100 Mile Track Time Trial record. The current time stands at 3 hours 47 minutes and was set by Rod Evans from Australia. It was set on May 8, 1994 at an indoor velodrome in Australia.
This fool has rented the velodrome, logged the miles on his fixed gear, trained on the track, and spent a couple of well placed hours in the wind tunnel back in February with John Cobb in Houston.
Here is a look at his ride.
All that is well and good, but take a look at the guys seattube….
… love the logo placement.
Anyone reading this gonna be in LA this Saturday morning? Come by the ADT center at about 11 in the morning…and you may be just in time to see him vomit into his aero drink bottle. This from a recent email he sent me trying to work out a series of commands that he might be yelling at me and the other hapless support crew ” …[yelling THIS word]…means I’m either going to throw up or I already did..into the Profile aerobar bottle, I hope.”
SO many details to consider….by
