    Hello KEIRIN CAFE,
    How are you? Gary,Mo,Maria….. Long time no see.

    My final race ended safely. My race was played last week.
    A lot of friends and fans had come to watch my race there. I ran with my master on the second day. And, I won and the master was 2nd place.
    My victory was the 212nd goal. It was a race that rang in one’s heart most.

    The final day came at last.
    My race result was 6th place. It was the 2336th goal. Afterwards, I reached family’s chest.

    It is said, "Yushu no bi" in Japan (end his career on a high note).
    Result of me of Keirin rider life. 29 years after it debuts. 212 victories (The chance of success is 9.0%) of 2336 races. 2nd place is 234 times. 3rd place is 227 times. DNF is 26 times. The disqualifications are four times.

    You can see my last race there website.

Sixdays 1985


This Thursday Ass Savers are putting on an exhibition of black and white film photographs from the 1985 Six Day Race in Berlin called Trackside ’85. The photographer, Staffan Jofjell, is a family friend of Ass Savers’ CEO and Co-founder, Staffan Weigel, and the images capture a fantastically interesting look at what was happening on the track, behind the scenes, and at a giant party in the middle of it all.

Trackside ’85 kicks off in Berlin on 17 July at Keirin Cycle Culture Café with an opening event featuring vintage track bikes alongside the photos and a talk by Staffan Jofjell.

See more at trackside85.com or Thursday from 6pm  @ Oberbaumstraße 5
