    i got there late and the Styler/Barret show had camp Bella in full effect. i just brought him tents to crash things with.

    Styler even took these pics of the womens as they baked in 100degree timetrial skidlids.

    {styler has the serious manstache going on. it’s part fu and all man chew.}

    .

    all i did was stand around with a she-riff and take this footage for Bob. it’s all travel food for awhile.

      Did you at least get to flatten a penny amidst all that close-up action?

      Here in wedding racing-moritorium-land, I look forward to daily updates.

      you were a welcome sight @ the turn-around. thanks for your sage advice: big breath, big drink, big gear. now, if you just could’ve prevented the wind from turning so we didn’t have a headwind both ways — brutal!

      yeah..the dual headwind I could have done without! You were a VERY welcome sight at the turnaround…and at least I didn’t drop my chain this year!

      story behind ~
      .
      that footage is, from start to finish, the only remaining memory i had in that card. i had just pulled over to pick up some traffic signs from the Kern TT, and saw the train coming.
      .
      i grabbed my camera and started running over to the train, just clicking it onto video and pressing start as the video opens.
      .
      and the memory card fills the exact moment the video stops.
      .
      and i wanted to get so much closer. but, a brown guy dressed funny video’ing a train passing isn’t something that common and i didn’t want to freak out anyone who might have driven by as i concentrated on the train.
      .
      the sound was everywhere, and i wanted to get right next to the wheel, down at it’s screeching connection with the rail, and feel the thrum of energy and mass and friction.
      .
      but alas, norms must be adhered to.
      .
      .
      anyway, bob loves trains.
      so he gets trains.
