    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.

Recently, a drawing of a bicycle thought to have originated from the studio of Leonardo da Vinci is now considered a hoax. This drawing was believed to be by Giacomo Caprotti (c. 1493), a pupil of Leonardo. Only the two circles are originally from the Codex Atlanticus, on the verso of sheet 133. Via
