The Driveway Series in Austin opened tonight and the place was packed! Great show as always by Holland Racing and all the sponsors. Some great pics from DCM Photography as usual as well. I did not make it into the top results, but just sitting in on the way to Fayetteville.
Can’t wait to go back to the Driveway!

Jeff Harrison selected as a finalist for the “Citizen Service Before Self” Honor by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society
See all of the finalists at the Congressional Medal of Honor Website.
The Citizen Service Before Self Honors are unique, because they are presented to unsung heroes by our nation’s most honored heroes—fewer than 100 living Medal of Honor recipients who comprise the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.
The finalists’ actions epitomize the concept of “service above self” and have been performed “above and beyond” their professional area of responsibility or conduct.
HEROIC ACT: Jeff Harrison of Fort Worth, Texas, has been recognized for valiantly rescuing a woman and her daughter from the rapids of the Trinity River on July 5, 2010. While riding his bike through Trinity Park, Harrison heard a commotion along the banks of the river and quickly became aware that a woman and a young girl were stranded and in danger of drowning in the strong current. Immediately, Harrison dismounted his bike and entered the river in an attempt to assist the woman and girl. He also noticed a third victim, an adult male downstream, who was trying to swim against the current and back toward his family. After reaching the woman and girl and pulling them both to safety on the river bank, he performed CPR on the woman to help her start breathing again. Although the woman’s husband passed away during the tragedy, Harrison’s involvement no doubt saved two lives that day. Jeff Harrison’s act of extraordinary heroism and bravery.
A panel, including Medal of Honor recipient representation, considered all nominations and selected national finalists. From among the 20 finalists, a second panel of Medal of Honor recipients will select three individuals to receive Citizen Service Before Self Honors. The recipients will be announced on Monday, March 22, 2011, and honored at a ceremony on Friday, March 25, 2011, at 2:15 p.m. EDT, in conjunction with National Medal of Honor Day. The ceremony will be held in the shadow of the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington Cemetery in Arlington, Va.

Cold (but above freezing). Windy (mostly from one direction).
BUT… Sunny and Dry!
You can’t have it all on a typical December 5th in North Texas, but it was great conditions for The Racing Post’s Winter Criterium today! We can ride fast, in a pack, non-stop, and (best-of-all) without cars. And yes there are “officials” there to make sure it goes down with the pre-race monologues and wise cracks. *whistle* They keep track of whats going on. Guarding the corners. Walking the track. Counting the laps. Enforcing “the rules”. Keeping racers informed. Counting the laps down some more. And keeping track of who wins the golden spoke!

Wow. What a great day to get out and do a safe, fast race with your friends.
This is was the first episode of The Racing Post‘s initiative to keep the “Eggnog and Chunks” winter criterium series tradition alive – and it was great!
For the P123 crowd – It was the usual suspects that would typically be racing each other around on the roads of Denton Co. on a Sunday morning – but safer-AND-faster, with a start line, finish-line cam, and gen-u-ine USAC officials keeping track of stuff! Personally, I thought it was great to see the sizable 4/5 field. What a great place & conditions for new racers to to get off to a positive start. Good vibes.
