So race season is over, the only thing that satisfy the racer side of me is watch old tapes and follow six-days on the web. Here's a read at fatnicks that I found quite interesting, thought I should share:

http://www.fatnick.com/spanner.htm

"At Zurich two of our riders started the race with 50x15 (90.0"). Eddy laughed at them: "Even Sercu at his best couldn't turn that gear", but they remained adamant. After the first two evenings they both realized that they couldn't turn this gear over for six days and switched to 49x15 (88.2")."
interesting stuff...thanks much(nm)ukiahb
