2019.10.08 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 10

Finally a track day with no rain. Our last three Twilight races and the Labour Day race got rained out. This was also our final weekend race of the Vie 13 series. I got to the track early, and was greeted by a packed parking lot and a swarm of bicycles. Apparently the NYC Century … Continue reading 2019.10.08 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 10

2019.08.04 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 8

This race weekend was going to give us some practice for the New York State Sprint Track Championships. I was going to do the endurance championships a week or so back but I had a personal commitment and therefore I had to skip. Even though I am not a sprinter, I figured I will still … Continue reading 2019.08.04 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 8

2019.07.21 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 7

It was announced that this event would be a Keirin. Keirin (競輪 / ケイリン, [keːɾiɴ]) – literally "racing cycle" – is a form of motor-paced cycle racing in which track cyclists sprint for victory following a speed-controlled start behind a motorized or non-motorized pacer. It was developed in Japan around 1948 for gambling purposes and … Continue reading 2019.07.21 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 7

2019.07.14 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP – The Race for Robyn Week 6

This race was dedicated to Robyn Hightman, and we seemed to have a decent overall turn out on this ninety degree day. At least we had a bit of a breeze to keep us from evaporating. The sun was definitely strong, I should have used some sunblock, but, I am banking on my fifty percent … Continue reading 2019.07.14 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP – The Race for Robyn Week 6

2019.06.30 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 5

After the sadness from last week (see A Void in our Heats) I had a very hard time racing on Wednesday night. I tried but I could not engage in the races and in the third race I bowed out after only two laps. I also skipped T-Town on Saturday deciding to only race Sunday. This … Continue reading 2019.06.30 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 5

2019.06.23 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 4

What can I say? I am a glutton for punishment. I want to support the series, so I decided that I should race even if I was tired from the long drive and racing from the day before. However this week four was featuring Match Sprints. I got to the track early in order to … Continue reading 2019.06.23 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 4

2019.06.09 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 3

Last week when I registered for the event, I ended up registering twice, once for Masters and once for Category 4. I was not supposed to do that. Apparently once registered you can race in other fields, so my second registration carried over to this weekend. I decided not to double up and race two … Continue reading 2019.06.09 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 3

2019.06.02 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 2

Edit: Official results came out, and got third in the snowball, and thus fourth in the Omnium. Still not complaining. Two weeks ago, I worked AR (Assistant Referee) at the first race in this series. The turn out was quite disappointing so I decided to race the second race. I signed up for the Men … Continue reading 2019.06.02 – Kissena Vie13 Kustom Apparel Weekend Series p/b Flanzig and Flanzig, LLP Week 2
