One of my photos is in the '08 Avanti catalogue
After yesterday's debarcle chasing hats, when I got home there was a big envelope waiting for me (my copy of GEB also arrived, bedtime reading for the next week or three ...). With my new hat on, I opened it, and it's a couple of '08 Avanti catalogues. I'd been contacted by one of their people a few months ago asking for permission to use a few photos I took at the Bendigo Madison last summer, we did a deal and they bought one of my photos (w00t!). Anyway, it's now gracing their catalogue, if you get hold of one, it's the photo of Brett Aitken opposite their carbon track bike.
Avanti's got quite a few track bikes on offer, which is unusual for a major manufacturer, they do three, one high end carbon and two aluminium alloy. Their new carbon bike looks nice - no idea how it rides of course, but it was being tested at the Bendigo Madison last summer and I got a couple of photos of it in use. I don't know if it's a BT, Bridgestone, Look or Teschner challenger, but that's probably what they're aiming for. It's not on their website yet and most of my BM photos aren't online yet so I can't show it to you. Some of my photos should also be in a Jayco thing I think, but I'm not sure if that happened, I should chase it up.
This arvo, we're trooping off to the BBN velodrome to do some sprint training. Hopefully I've thrown this 'flu off well enough to get some quality work done chasing Pat's motorbike.
