But if you don't push him really hard, you'll never turn into an annoying sports parent. Living vicariously through your kids is where it's at.

Well, I gave it a go today. Riding the other way round a velodrome, I mean. It was, um, interesting. Things just felt slightly wrong. I reckon doing a flying 200 or something would be even more interesting.

Well, think of the likely carnage if some of the racers were going the other way. :)
