Who needs head lamps when you have the light from the pearly white smiles....
Dan with a decent, but not amazing, skid.
The Skid Contest proved to be a huge nailbiter as Jeff Curries amazing skid was beaten only by 6" from the now 2 time winner Patrice Boudreau. This should obviously be an olympic demo sport for 2008.
Just itchin' to start
Mike Leblanc (far right) doing his stunning Ali G impersonation. Respect Mike.
A new and exciting and very unique run up... the stadium seating bordering the velodrome. Good choice luc. (Riders are Coach and racer once again, Luc Arseneau followed by team president Pablo Vergara)
Light up the run up
Jeff in HOT PUUUURSUIT!
Pablo on his new skinny 1.5's being hunted by frank with the crooked plate. That was a good battle until franks cranks fell off...
Pablo leading Frank into the west side chicane.
Volunteers make this happen. Sean in orange, Adrian in the stylish Vee neck...both staying the mandatory distance from Huge across the street. Thanks VERY MUCH guys!
Christain Arseneault on the warpath. Super solid racing all night from this guy, Mike and Jeff worked hard but still couldn't find his wheel. Well done.
The intense concentration by Mike
Another example of a rider ruining my nighttime plant photography. :-)
Ian "el Diablo eyes" Dennis overtaking Roger and Sherry at the mandatory dismount over the railroad ties.
Krista got some dirt on 'er
Mike carrying his stealth bomber. Mike opted to run no lights to save weight.
Chris Selkirk battling hard all night. Chris is improving by leaps and bounds. (its a pun but its also true!)
Skid Master Patrice at the only considerable water crossing on the excellent night course. Patrice is performing superbly this season and is still progressing. Great year for him.
Is that PINK handle bar tape...awww Luc its pretty :)
Dan Richard hanging off the back. Dans a wicked multi-discipline athlete (bike/run/ice/rock/ski you name it.)
Overall Points leader Michelle Chase rockin the mud on her Fuel 90.
Luc Belliveau, just beyond the mud. Last week you may remember luc because of his uber-florescent downhill/highway flagger jersey. personally i perfered it. :-)
Guy Pellerin on his super sweet 06 Giant Trance. Guy placed second and is now expected to 'step it up' next week! good job Guy.
Young upstart Brayden Selkirk workin crazy hard to show up his old man at the event...and he did (sorry chris but your son rocked!) :-)
Vincent Losier hitting the fireroad. Vincent suffered some mechanicals 1/2 way through the race impacting his results... next week i suspect it'll be a different podium.
Krista Koval accelerating after the slow grass section. Krista was the only racer asking me for her placing immediatly after the race. Kristas got a racers heart! she'll be stiff competition for the other expert racers in the 06 season. Good work Krista!
this applied as much for cars as it did for riders. night racing put a few more over the bars than normal.
We were thrilled to have new faces show up last night. Vincent showed great form in a very new sport for him.
If jeff had of been going his normal speed he'd be in flash and in focus.. Jeff was suffering a bit last night but still managed to perform.
Luc A enjoying the suffering again. Its a real pleasure to see him back in the saddle again, he's a good competitor.
The Atlantic Cycling Center as seen by Blair Witch.
Do not, i repeat DO NOT run with an open shutter; if you do you'll end up with this crap.
Honest officer...there were these lights in the sky. Ma and me was a bit skaird.
Mike looking like he has pretty streamers on his bike....he doesn't...really.
Frank and Eugene. Wait...Frank aren't you suppose to be on course? Eugene just itchin' to ring the final lap bell.
Looks like Patrice is riding down The Strip. Pretty cool effects from the lights.
Roger Tabone, a local triathlete, came out to try cross. If he masters the dismount/remount he'll be a force. nice job Roger!.
Guy and Sherry wondering if they may need to call for an ambulance for Michelle. "GASP" "WHEEZE"
