So Learn To Ride (LTR) #3 was fun. We all worked on some more basic skils... like standing starts. This was then the perfect venu for Adam and Skylar to race it out. The race was a pursuit. Each racer started on opposite sides of the track (the track is 200m in total, giving 100m inbetween). The race goes for either 15 laps or until one rider catches the other, which ever happens first. I attached a little video camera to Skylar(aka master o dustruction) bike prior to the start, from which I did a quick edit job last night to put together this little video. Click the "Play" link to watch it. Make sure to listen carefully, because there are some funny conversations.

Results

The race started strong. Skylar went out harder than Adam off the start but slowly lost his steam and ended up conceeding the win to Adam (aka deltaentropy) before the 15 lap limit. Word on the street is MOD blew his juice prior to the race... ekk!

The coolest thing throughout the grudge match was that mucho sportsmanship reigned supreme by both parties, before, during and after the competition. Both where quite evenly matched at the start and we we may have a little rematch when Skylar gets his juice back.

As for the winnings, if you listen in the Video... It looks like Adam may make Skylar wear spandex and go for a road ride. That will be an interesting sight!

Yikes!

 Its a nice little cross section of Vancouver, and its always a battle trying to see how many B-lines I can pass up.

Great race guys!

In a way, its almost a shame Skylar didn't win, because he could have made Adam ride his BMX to UBC =D

Also, great idea putting the camera on for the race!
