Why I Have No Results Tonight

Filed under: ADT Event Center,USA Nationals — Administrator @ 10:19 pm

Tonight Jim (my son) crashed during warmup, along with Matt Mosby, Ryan Nelman, Ben Barczewski, and Kim LaFleur. No really serious injuries to anyone, as far as we can tell, but I’ve never seen Jim in so much pain. Some of the others were banged up as well, and at least one wheel and one very special fork were lost.

After a second fall on a pair of pit wheels, Jim switched to his race wheels, did some more warmup, and finished his 2k scratch race. It would have been easier to skip that race, but in an omnium you have to at least start each event, or be eliminated from the rest [apparently not, see comments].

Back to the title of this item – my mind was on wheels, cleat bolts, ice, and trying to tell a strain from a tear. You’ll have to rely on USACycling for tonight’s results. Nothing is posted yet, but they have a link-to-be here. I also appears that this page will have an article every day or so.

Delayed Comments

A quick note about delayed comments. When I set this site up I wanted to make sure it stayed “kid safe” so I set it up so that I have to approve each post. Sorry for the delays, but at times I’m often away from any internet connection for 6 hours or so, and sometimes much more.

Please make comments – but there will be a delay.

Daniel Holloway, Unclipped

Filed under: ADT Event Center,USA Nationals — Administrator @ 2:15 pm

The drama of the morning came when Daniel Holloway unclipped in his Kilo start. Fortunately, current rules allow one restart. The pictures tell the story (as usual, click for a larger version).

Deep breath
A deep breath for oxygen and focus.

Unclipped Unclipped. Daniel’s left heel can be seen above the saddle.

Kilo RestartDaniel restarts his kilo, but with less power. A second pull-out would be a disaster.

Bike throwA final throw across the line, and the event is over. With a poor first split and a strong finish, he still got third.

Aaron Kacala was first; Mike Schnabel, second. More results and pictures to follow.
