Taliah won the Womens' race and Maggie almost caught her.
This one-minute movie mpeg shows the entire race.

Rollout #1 - Brooklyn

You can tell we had a great time. Just look at Amanda. About 10 riders got on rollers for the first time. We set up the Cortina and Big Yankee rollers for practice, and many riders needed some kind of support chair or crate. photo © Taliah Lempert

Jared, Squid & Amy. These three rode the Goldsprint at Zurich. Squid and Amy were the honchos behind Metropoloco. Here you can see how the Barelli rollers are higher from the ground than most. Getting on and off with typical cycling cleats is pretty slippery. We had quite a few falls and broke one of the roller belts. Those are easier to replace than the dial belts. Sometimes one rider would fall and others would follow like dominos. photo © Taliah Lempert

Our first races--almost. Yac's on the left in polka dots riding Jared's Cannon, I'm in the middle on the Nishiki TT bike with a 68-tooth chainring!. That bike makes the dial go round in a hurry. I thought it was cool to wear a long-sleeve wool jersey and hairnet helmet. Hermes (on the right) is another one of the wizards of Metropoloco who rode at Zurich. We held a series of heats after everyone was worn out, and Yac won as usual. photo © Taliah Lempert

Our Hostess, Taliah Lempert warms up the rollers before the action begins.
