starstruck at starcrossed

under the lights of the marymoor velodrome, the pro men and women wowed the starcrossed crowd with their speed, grace, and yes, sheer power. to say the pros are fast is an understatement. instead, i think the photo below captures how i felt about their speed - it's warp speed. it makes an amateur like me feel like i'm pedaling through molasses compared to how the pros ride. and don't get me started about the barriers. from dismount to remount, it's just one fluid motion. it's beautiful to watch.
