For the eleventh year, I am the scorekeeper for a Tour de France Pool. My team, “Team Florky,” has already lost one of it’s better riders after the first stage. This year looks to be as poor a performance as usual, then, for my team.

Here’s the standings page for the 2016 edition of the Tour de France pool. Go Team Florky!
Taken today, 45 minutes away from my workplace by bicycle.
In the process of clearing out some old files, I came across these historical documents of the two collegiate cycling national championships I’ve helped organize. I have scanned them and uploaded them for your enjoyment.
- 2007 Track Nationals Rider Manual – hosted by UCSD. The pink color is on the original and an artifact of a printing error. PDF File
- 2003 Road Nationals Rider Manual – hosted by UC Berkeley. PDF File.
- 2003 Road Nationals Logo – this awesome logo was made by my good friend Kristin Prentice. It still looks sharp!
My Tour Pool 2015 page is up! Check it out daily after each stage to see how terrible my team (Florky) is doing (as it does every year!).
(p.s. From now on I will copy/paste the above text every year. See 2014)
Below are some photos of the homemade parts I made for the truck that my old bike rack can interface with. I used pieces of shelf rail that hold the Yakima feet, and attach the whole stack to the rails on the side of the bed. This arrangement allows me to dis/mount the rack in a minute or so, which is how things have worked on previous vehicles with the rack, and I’m happy that it can work the same here. It’s not the prettiest thing, and I suppose I could paint them black so they blend in better. Anyway, they were about $250 cheaper than the “official” Yakima system, so a little unsophistication is acceptable.
