BM2012: Saturday Afternoon Pictures
September 15, 2012 by jnyyz
It is a tradition to have group pictures around midday on Saturday. For me, this was a second chance to see some of the bikes.
Thom’s Obiwan camera bike.
Thomas models his Cygnus top with the bubble for extra head clearance.
At this point, there is a commotion around the Super 8 entrance as the law arrives.
Sebastiaan is cuffed for going more than 10 mph above the limit.
The officer then proceeded to issue tickets to all those exceeding the speed limit on 305, which is 70 mph on the course.
Ellen looks happy.
Gareth wonders what is going on.
Sergey gets cited for being Russian.
Thomas. I hear he broke 75 tonight.
Ironically, this means that he will never get his 70 mph hat. Update: I hear that he got both the 70 and 75 mph hats.
All the arrest photos are here.
Here are all the 70 mph violators.
Now the bikes come out for the group shot.
Bluenose is now blue. (Paint still drying)
The group shot.
Sean looks proud of his bike. Note the small holes for knee clearance, with rubber covers. He is looking forward to getting his 70 mph hat.
Aurelien showed up late for the group shot with Altair 4. This bike has had stability problems.
The world’s fastest tandemists.
Signing off from Battle Mountain for this year! (I’m typing this in SFO) I hope people went fast tonight!
