november in germany

ah.. big guys on derny bikes motorpacing the racers around the track, it must be track season in Europe. i need to go visit my friend in berlin one of these winters so i can go watch the famous 6-day races. this type of racing used to be huge here in the US back in the '20s and '30s, Madison Square Garden was the haven for the world's best track racers. imagine going to an arena with a velodrome, sitting down having a nice meal and drinks with live music, and at the same time racers are whizzing by on the track. so 6-day racing lives on, primarily in Germany.
