it was quite "moist" in the T-town area. One day of racing was cancelled and the next day was delayed.

Hey Nick,
I notice on the website you are on that you were at Junior World's! That's awesome!!! What kind of bike do you ride? How have you done this year? What tracks are in Canada? I raced track for the past four years(t-town) but have only recently gotten serious about it. Hopefully next year will be much better than this past season! Anyways, good to hear that there is a world caliber trackie lurking around this board! I'll be sure to direct my track questions at you when they arise. Take care

Bob,

Its cool you checked out my site!

Anyway I ride a Cramerotti. I rode a Cyclops last year however.

There are 6 tracks in Canada which you'll probably have to take a map out to find. They are...
1) Victoria, BC - 333 m concrete
2) Burnaby, BC - 200 m indoor wood
3) Calgary, AB - 400 m outdoor
4) Edmonton, AB - 333 m concrete
5) Bromont, AB - 250 m outdoor wood (Atlanta Olympic track)
6) New Brunswick - 250 m outdoor wood (brand new)

Then 2 crazy ass tracks... one ??? m concrete no raining in Ontario and one in Quebec city thats a super shitty 200 m one.

I love the track (obviously since its what I've become best at) so its cool to hear you've gotten serious about it!

As for this year my season was put on hold after an accident in Trinidad. Hence, The Crash portion of the site. Brain damage... coma for 20 mins... complete amnesia for 2 weeks sleeping 22 hours a day and not allowed to train for 3 months. As a precaution I can't ride outside till next year. As for lasting damage it is minimal and I am back to my same old self although it could have (should have) been a lot worse.

However, I am spending a lot of time in the weight room training preparing for next season.

Cheers,
Nick

Bromont is about an hour west of Montreal. Its a fairly small ski town.

Nick,
Good to hear you are doing better after that serious of a crash. I didn't realize you guys had so many tracks in Canada! That's great. I too am hitting the weights in preparation of next year- we'll see what happens (fingers crossed)! Good luck on your racing and recovery. Take care

Hey Nick,
I was there Saturday night for the Madison,sprint, wmns. keirin, and wmns. 5-mile scratch. It was cold for this area, about 60 degrees by 8 p.m. By 10:30 I was shivering! In short, pretty good weather if you were racing. After Marty Nothstein lost the madison, everyone went home...he's the local favorite, as you know.

cheers,
Peter
