Larardo of Pedal Shop OUT
still kicking it, i am building a new space age race bike to kick RBI's ass even if he has a new bottom bracket, hes got no chance. We might have to move the drag races to the salt flats.
ha ha next month i will be ready to race again.

i didnt even realize it was sprints week already! ive been in ojai working.
i want to try a longer course with different gearing.
04.13.09 - 12:31 pm
I think Lardito should be informed about the fact that people are still down to do the races. Does anyone else know how to contact him besides this forum?
I want to see Yetiman and RBI go at it a few more times before these races become done.
04.13.09 - 10:05 pm
Agreed. I heard a bunch of the TNS crowd showed up to race, and noone was there. Timing malfuckery?
04.13.09 - 10:07 pm
i have the old guy's number somewhere...
04.14.09 - 8:01 am
Get at him iJunes.
I want to see a few more races go on before it ends.
04.14.09 - 3:53 pm
I am still here Just Email me with what you want.
I want to keep the ride. The course is bad ass, but hey ,if no one shows what can I do about it.
The course can hold a longer race, just you guys have to let me know.
YETIMAN is ALIVE
04.16.09 - 7:14 am
what about sprints for noobs? ... i have been wanting to try this for the longest... but i think the more experienced ridaz will smoke me.
04.16.09 - 5:04 pm
im experienced and i get smoked.
its for fun you dummy.
04.16.09 - 5:13 pm
no shit!!! tell me something i dont know.
The question was to get peoples that are afraid of the races(for lack of experience, or speed) to come out so the event does not get canceled... obviously you have a handicap that does not allow you to see beyond your own ego...
-kiss my ass
04.16.09 - 5:30 pm
what happens at the noho sprints:
9:15 i see a few riders.
9:30 we wait for larry
9:45 we wait telling ourselves people will show up at 10
10:10 we hand out with whoever was there because nobody shows up.
10:35 we start telling each other aite its time to go home.
10:45 everone goes home.
04.16.09 - 5:33 pm
You don't get good worring about losing. Have fun first and then come back stronger.
RBI and Yettiman are Team Riders and it would take a trained racer to keep up.
Race I junes . Everybody beats him anyway.
we can do a handicap race so good riders start back a bit.....No worrys
04.16.09 - 5:33 pm
ouch larry thats cold.
im not a sprinter. i am a time trialist.
04.16.09 - 5:35 pm
that sounds koo...the first time i showed up was when the racers did not show...ill show again next time...
ijunes i missed you...
04.16.09 - 5:36 pm
9 PM 9 PM
I wated till about 10:00 and Split . Rocky and Sylvan showed but no one else
I guess we all got are times messed up.
Next month all new 3 racee series.......Hey try not to be late or call me and tell me when you comming.
By the way What the fuck calling me the OLD MAN
Just for that I race you for pinks if you have any bikes left to race on
04.16.09 - 5:41 pm

04.16.09 - 5:48 pm
wait,is lardito/larado ,larry? universal velo larry?
04.16.09 - 5:50 pm
Are the 213ers welcome to come kick some ass @ these races??
Trolls need not reaspond...
04.16.09 - 5:53 pm
ive actually wanted to roll to this event but its on a mosey wednesday night.. Ill sacrafice a mosey to see some good clean races if they still happen next month..
04.16.09 - 5:54 pm
the mosey is welcome. ktown forge and gorge has been up before.
the races are always posted for 9pm but we never actually start racing until 10 or so.
04.16.09 - 6:07 pm
I think people need to be careful about callin Larry an Old Man.
He could give everyone a good run for their money and might just go home with your bike if you decide to race him !
04.16.09 - 9:00 pm
How about having some different classes ?
Maybe more riders would show if they felt they had a fair chance.
and what about a cash purse for the fast guys?
04.17.09 - 8:52 am
larry told me a story once about the first or second time he held the noho sprints. some guy (i forget his name) won like, $100+ from beating everyone, but then told larry to keep it. so when he shows up with an ice chest of beer - that guy paid for it.
great tale, happy ending, etc.
04.17.09 - 9:00 am
I can tune up the story.
The guy was Bearclaw from the valley, showed up and everyone thought they could beat him
Long story short my fix gear bike couldn't keep up on the super long drag strip against his 10k carbon road bike and he took all our money and threw down " some " cash to larry for beer for the next time and then never showed up again......
The good old days of the super super long drag strip. I think it was about 3 or 4 times what we run now.
04.17.09 - 9:17 am
i am down for a month or two of 500 or 1000m sprints instead of the 250 or whatever it is we do currently.
04.17.09 - 9:32 am
did u guys race a few wednesdays ago?
i came by with a bunch of folks from the bikery meeting and no one was there.
we proceeded to wait and drink.
i got shit faced and left.
04.17.09 - 9:36 am
the whole stretch is 700 meters, we can do a 600 meter sprint like they do on the tracks, drafting is completely legal i mean ts a race, use some strategy.
04.17.09 - 10:22 am
NO DRAFTING !
THERE IS NO DRAFTING IN DRAG RACING
DRAFTING WILL ENCOURAGE CAT AN MOUSE TACTICTS
THUS SLOWING DOWN THE PACE OF THE RACES.
OK FOR A BANKED VELODROME TRACK,
LAME FOR NOHO SPRINTS.
RULE # 1 SHOULD BE: YOUR DISQUALIFIED IF YOU DRAFT OR
GO INTO THE OTHER RIDERS LANE.
STRONGEST RIDER WINS BY SPEED, NOT WHEEL SUCKING.
500 METERS IS THE STANDARD DISTANCE FOR MATCHED SPRINTS
AT THE VELODROME.
04.17.09 - 7:24 pm
Plus to add to that, last time we allowed DRAFTING it looked like someone was going to crash every race. The racing was all over the place because most people don't understand how to draft proper and the little path is just to narrow for if something goes wrong.
04.17.09 - 8:07 pm
Yeah. Drafting isn't really necessary for such a sprint like this.But hopefully people show up next time for this great race.
04.18.09 - 7:32 pm
You make the calls on the distance.
Just let me know ahead of time to set up the course
And beginner novice and expert class. Just let me know
and finally Can everyone be on time or give me a time for everyone to arrive. I am thinking sighn ups at 9 PM races start at 10PM
I can tweak the race any way is best '
I liked the whole course to race so maybe different length races
04.24.09 - 5:57 pm
I guess I have to admit I am getting sorts old when I cannot beat dedicated up a hill anymore.
04.24.09 - 6:03 pm
I think I may have to finally admit my body is wearing out.
but I had a great run
