A Night at the Major Taylor Velodrome

Went out to watch some action at the Major Taylor Velodrome in Indy this evening. The weather was perfect, sunny with absolutely no wind. There was a solid turnout of riders, and everyone was relaxed and having a good time racing and/or watching.

Our man Shawn Wolf was there cranking around... check out his initial flying lap where you can hear the announcer cracking on him for running clips and straps...!

This is Shawn's Kinfolk. Gorgeous.

To top it all off, the great-granddaughter of Major Taylor himself was hanging out in the infield during the races. She happened to be in town for some sort of plaque dedication so she stopped by to check out the facility. She's the woman sitting on the right...

All in all it was a great evening. Hopefully I'll be able to make it out at least one more time before the season is over...
