Olympic track Cycling in Seoul 1988

I saw these beautiful photographs around the 1988 Seoul Olympic Velodrome over at Southsea Fixed Gear Fight Club (SFGFC) and thought they were just super sweet. Each photo is accompanied by a little bit of text of how nztony relates to what you see, and some are really great: “This would be a whole lap and a quarter after I finished. I am slowly winding down so I can get off the bike on the back straight, where my coach will collect me. By now I would have looked up at the giant score board and seen my time and that I was number 1 on the leader board (for now!)”

  1. 14bikeco, wow, thank you so much for such an amazing and very kind commentary about my photos and how you liked the captions – I am really really touched and feel very proud. Posting these photos to Flickr has been a real labour of love and its really quite mind blowing, after all this time, to be finding them on blogs etc. And a big thank you for how easily and clearly they are linked back to me.

    • Tony, I absolutely loved these photos, it’s a gift that you have given in posting them online for all to see
      If you have any more of this sort I’d love to see them, though I appreciate how much effort goes into it

      all the best, mikey
